12th Annual Art Gala
We're getting excited as the final week before the gala approaches. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and sponsored the event, as well as those who donated time and goods. It will be a fun evening with many great items to bid on.
Valentine's Day Class Parties
Thank you to all of the teachers and families who helped make Valentine's Day a success. From the hanging hearts to the flowers, candies, and notes, it was a fun afternoon.
We want to congratulate Natalia Morales on accepting a position that will help her advance in her career. While we will greatly miss her, don't be surprised if you see her around. She promises to keep in touch and support AIS in the future, and she has already agreed to work the gala! Families, students, and staff appreciate everything you've done and wish you the best!
We'd like to welcome Tiffany Beaufreton, a CE2 and CM2 parent, to the team as our new administrative assistant. After arriving from France, she spent the previous seven years in North Carolina before moving to Austin this year. With her experience as a real estate agent who specializes in international relocation, she will be a wonderful asset to all the families and especially those arriving from outside the area. Stop by and introduce yourself next time you are on campus.
