FAIS Counseling Center Benefits Parents, Too
Posted 09/18/2015 03:49PM

FAIS has traditionally hosted various programs and lectures on campus, covering topical subjects for both Lower and Middle School parents. As of this fall, these offerings have been combined into a more formal series, called the Family Enrichment Series, to be held in the Rose Préau Commons. Parents can find a full calendar of upcoming presentations on the FAIS Website, under Counseling on the Parents page. This coming week, on Thursday, September 24, the Series first lecture, "Bullying Prevention," will be held, presented by Communities for Safe Kids/Impact NW. On September 29, "The Birds + Bees + Technology: Tips To Keep Your Elementary Schooler Safer In A Super-Connected World" will be presented by childhood sexuality and parent expert Amy Lang (for parents only; subject matter is not appropriate for children). Join other parents and learn more about these important issues! Questions? Contact Diana Platas, Lower School Counselor, at dplatas@faispdx.org.


Joining us for tomorrow's (Saturday, November 3) annual Fête du Vin celebration? Get ready to taste delicious wines from 11 different wineries, enjoy scrumptious bites from Hunt and Gather Catering, Murray’s Cheese, and Angel Bake, and build community among FAIS friends (and buy your favorite wines, of course). Can't make it to the event? You can still order amazing wines -- all wine ordered before November 7 will be available for pick-up on Monday, November 19... just in time for Thanksgiving! Plus, 25 percent of all proceeds from wine sales go back to FAIS to support programs and initiatives that make our school special. Buy wine here!

If you shop on Amazon, you can raise money for FAIS! AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon with the price, products, and even Prime, but with the bonus of donating 0.5 percent of each purchase to your chosen charity. Visit this link to start shopping!

Until midnight tonight (November 2), AmazonSmile is celebrating a milestone by increasing their donation rate to 5 percent of all purchases—ten times the usual rate!
