The FISW Gala is held in the spring at a wonderful local venue. Save the date! The 2020 Gala will be held on May 2, 2020 at Newcastle Golf Club. With live and silent auctions, dinner and dancing, it is a wonderful opportunity for our community to come to together to socialize and support our school. Proceeds from the Gala help cover the 10% gap between tuition and the actual costs of running a school.
Donations raised through Fund-A-Need are restricted to a special project chosen by our educational team. Previous projects include enhancing our science program, improving the playground and creating a theater. Our current project, entering the third and final phase this year, is to design optimal spaces for learning tailored to each age and grade level. The generosity of donors to our first two phases allowed us to redesign 6 classrooms and purchase a computer lab on wheels. Our project for 2020 is to redesign all of the remaining classrooms and the Véronique Dussud Library.
Are you new to FISW or not sure how to get involved? Do not hesitate to contact your room parent, PTA officer or a member of the staff. They’d love to help.
There are many ways to support the FISW Gala: attend the event, donate an item, sponsor a table, or advertise in the program.
