Current FAIS Volunteer Opportunities

In an effort to provide our younger students with more calming strategies and supports, we are asking for a volunteer with basic sewing skills to create weighted lap pads for Maternelle classrooms.

 

Here is an example: Weighted Lap Pad. We need small sizes with washable covers. The materials used are rice or plastic pellets plus fabric.

 

If you are able to donate the materials in-kind, we will give you an additional .5 hrs of volunteer time per pad.

 

Thank you for helping us in an effort to bring calm and peace to our students throughout the year.

 

To get involved, please contact Diana Platas, Lower School Counselor, at dplatas@faispdx.org.

The FAIS bouldering wall needs a team of eager parent volunteers to help remove, wash, and organize its climbing holds on Tuesday, December 14th. 

Sign Up Here!

Choose from 9-11am, 11-1pm, or 1-3pm. Volunteers would be tasked with using a ladder and impact driver to take holds off of the wall, then run these holds through FAIS' commercial dishwasher, and finally organize them by size and color.

These well-organized holds would then be reset by a hired routesetter the following day so that the wall is new and exciting for the students' return from break. Training on hold removal will be provided.

This can be an ongoing volunteer role!
