Head of School, Year 3: Belonging

FAIS families, students, staff, supporters, and alumni:
Last year started differently than we expected. But, together and with amazing resilience, we remained committed to staying connected, grateful, and joyful.
Year 3 has us starting the school year back on campus -- all grades, all day, all week! While life has not yet returned to "ordinary," FAIS continually proves to be EXTRAordinary, and a community to which I am proud to belong. I am committed to ensuring that sense of belonging is felt by each of us, every time we step on campus.
