5th Grade Celebration

The FAIS community gathered this morning to celebrate our 5th grade students' journey from Maternelle to Middle School. Thank you to the parent volunteers for all of the time and creativity that went into making this such a beautiful and memorable experience!


Retiring Head of School Pam Dreisin delivered her final 5th grade commencement speech… Lower School Division Head Catherine Cohen offered a heartfelt look back (and ahead)… the audience enjoyed a slideshow of baby/current pictures of each student (plus surprise baby photos of our 5th grade teachers!)… and the class shared memories in poems and musical performances – both in French and English.


Congratulations and bonne chance to our 5th grade students! We look forward to seeing you next year in the new Middle School building. In the meantime, safe travels and bon voyage on tomorrow’s two-week international exchange trip in Paris – a more than 25-year FAIS tradition!
