Winning Isn't Everything: A Closer Look at Cooperation and Competition
Posted 02/03/2017 05:00PM

Family Enrichment Series Appearance by Howard Hiton February 8, 7:00 p.m.

Ever wonder how to encourage your child to be competitive but also cooperative? On Wednesday, February 8 (at 7 p.m. in the Commons), licensed professional counselor Howard Hiton will be visiting the FAIS campus to talk about competition: understanding and maintaining the healthy aspect of competition as well as understanding and preventing the harmful side. Hiton will have suggestions of how to nurture developmentally appropriate learning experiences through competition, whether winning or losing, and how to encourage intrinsic motivation in our children, as opposed to incentivizing them with awards, trophies, and treats. Join us, and feel free to bring friends from outside the FAIS community.
Questions? Contact Lower School Counselor Diana Platas.


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!
