Celebrate and Give!

The Annual Gala is a festive occasion held each year at an off-campus venue for the entire school community and is our largest fundraising event of the year. The event brings together parents, friends, and supporters of the French American International School to celebrate the school's mission of cultivating intelligence and character through rigorous multilingual academic programs and the appreciation of diverse cultures and experiences.

The FAIS Annual Gala (themed the Roaring '20s) will take place on May 2, 2020. Opportunities to get involved are abundant. Volunteer options include everything from helping with décor/set-up to working to procure silent and live auction items to planning the auction "after party." Can't volunteer, but have an experience, tickets, a house or something else to donate to our live auction to support FAIS? Please email Sara Hernando at for more on how to be a part of our school's biggest fundraiser of the year.

Last year's theme was Confetti, Cakes, and Candles which celebrated the French American International School's 40th birthday! The Special Appeal, the paddle raise at the event, raised money that went toward teacher and staff resources. FAIS also celebrated and bid adieu to Pam Dreisin, who retired after over 10 years of service as the French American International School's Head of School.
