Over 65 families and 200 people showed up to the Fun Committee’s family fun event on Saturday, January 12 and it was a blast.
Congratulations to 5th grade student Euan, the winner of the Ninth Annual FAIS spelling bee held on January 15.
Heavy winds during the first few days of the new year affected the FAIS Forest, toppling a tree that had been weakened by a fungal infection. The Nature Trail and Outdoor Classrooms were closed for just a few days, until the tree could be removed. It was a blessing in disguise, as the Green Team will be using the salvaged wood on upcoming nature trail restoration projects.
