Each year, our 8th graders have the opportunity to embark on a two-week class trip to the country of their beginning language (French, German, Mandarin, or Spanish).
Last Wednesday, 7th graders from Mr. Luther's digital design class took a field trip to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry to check out its summer exhibit, "The Science of Pixar."
Last month, Joshua Widdows won the 100-meter race in the district track finals – and became the first FAIS student athlete to win the 100-meter in 15 years of league competition!
