  • Bienvenue!A Message from the Head of School

    Bienvenue and welcome to the French American International Schools 26th Annual Gala Auction! Every year Im so pleased to see our community join together to support the Schools efforts and celebrate its students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends. This years theme, Bloom!, is certainly apropos for this time of year, when our campus is ablaze with the colors of spring flowers. But it is the blossoming of our students that takes center stage, as they continue to flourish in so many different ways as we approach the end of the school year. Tonight is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate that while having a really fun evening. This night is also about supporting the mission of FAIS, as your generous donations help fund our 2014-15 annual operations in addition to this years Special Appeal project. Thank you, as always, for your loyalty and support, especially on this special evening.

    Wishing you the best,

    Pam DreisinHead of School

  • 1. On arriving at the auction check-in desk, you will be given a bidder card that lists your unique bidder number. (One number is issued per couple.) To bid in the silent auction, write your bid number on the silent auction bid sheet in front of the desired item. The bid number next to the highest bid amount at the end of the silent auction will be declared the successful bidder of that item. If a number is not legible, it will be invalidated and the next lowest bidder will be declared the winner. In the silent auction, the top bid constitutes a legal contract to purchase the item.

    2. You may return to update your bid on silent-auction items, using the pre-printed bid incre-ments on the bid sheet, until the auctioneer announces the close of the silent auction. To avoid being overbid, you may opt at any time to fill in the guaranteed bid Buy It Now which is 150 - 200 percent of value, and you will be declared the winner. (No one can outbid you.)

    3. Some items in the silent auction are sold on a fixed-price signup basis. These include party sig-nups: group events where seats are sold on a per-person or per-couple basis. These are some-times referred to as Salon Parties.

    4. To bid in the live auction, hold your bid card in the air, with the number facing the auctioneer. Most live-auction items are sold to a single high bidder; some are sold to a pre-determined number of bidders at a fixed (in a sweep) or escalating price (progressive bid). The auctioneer guides bidders through the bid processes.

    5. When the auctioneer acknowledges your winning bid, this constitutes a legal agreement of purchase. The auctioneer reserves the right to reject partial advance bids, and has the right to make final determination of the winning bidder.

    6. At check-in, guests will be asked to provide a credit card that is captured electronically and which streamlines check-in and check-out. Users of this quick and easy credit card settlement option can bypass the cashiering line at the end of evening, and move directly to fulfillment to pick up their prizes.

    7. Payment arrangements must be provided on the night of the auction. Winning bidders must settle item payment at cashiering/fulfillment, which will open near the end of the live auction.

    8. Bookkeeping is simplified if auction items are awarded to one purchaser only. Split payments for a syndicated (group) bid, whereby several bidders agree to split the price, can be arranged but may cause a slight delay in cashiering.

    9. Personal checks, cash, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted for payment. Please make checks payable to FAIS or the French American International School.

    10. Since FAIS is a 501-c-3 charitable organization, your payments are tax deductible as a charita-ble contribution, to the extent provided by lawgenerally, 100 percent of cash donations to the Special Appeal (Paddle Raise) and the amount paid over value for items or services. The Schools tax ID number is printed on auction receipts.

    Auction Rules

    14. The School reserves the right to modify, add or delete items to/from the auction. The School commits to acknowledge all items received four weeks prior to the auction date. Items re-ceived thereafter may be displayed and merchandised at the auction but may not be featured in the catalog due to print schedules.

    15. The purchaser assumes the responsibility to remove purchases from the auction premises on the night of the auction, unless other delivery terms are specifically arranged. At the close of the auction, purchasers are requested to retrieve certificates as well as tangible items from the fulfillment center, upon showing their quick-pay receipt or their paid invoice from cashiering.

Statements made in the catalog or at the auction shall not be deemed as warranty, representation or assumption of liability. Values listed in the catalog are estimates and are not warranted for tax purposes. Auction items are offered as is and where is.

    France as Seen by FAIS"If I tell you "France", what is the first word that comes to your mind?" This is the question that the 18 first graders from Laurence & Erin's classroom asked our school's community. Teachers, students, and parents all shared their words, and thanks to the magic of technology a map of France was created showing that Paris, Tour Eiffel, croissant and vin were definitely the words that our community had in mind. Coordinated by Heidi Thistle. Children of Laurence Le Mercier's 1st Grade Class

    ExperiencesUsing a Holga camera and black-and-white film, the students in this first grade class assembled a wonderful collection of photossome representational and others abstract/surrealfor a final product that is wonderfully retro and a nod to the rich history of photography.

Coordinated by Kyra Czar.Children of Stphanie Martin-Sewalls 3rd Grade Class

    Keep Portland WetInspired by their study of the limited nature of Earths fresh water supply, one of our fourth grade classes decided to represent the beautiful city of Portland in blue to emphasize how lucky we are to have an abundant access to water. They used a creative process inspired by an ancient Japanese technique, drawing distinctive features of Portland on foam boards, then covering them in blue ink paint with rollers. When they were imprinted on paper they made blue shapes outlined in white lines, creating a gorgeous Portland skyline of shades of blue. Coordinated by Aurore Molerus.Children of Aurore Moleruss 4th Grade Class


    Life in the Deep Blue Sea-ShirtAfter learning that large, wasteful amounts of water are used to manufacture T-shirts, these industrious 4th grade students created a sea-scape tapestry of their own castoff T-shirts.

The sailboats represent their teachers who guided them on this journey. Coordinated by Maria Kozo and June Kim.Children of Marion Rosiers 4th Grade Class

    Le Roi SoleilThis project was inspired by the installation work of Denmark-based Malaysian artist Amir Zainorin.

Coordinated by Maud Guegan.Children of Maud Guegans 5th Grade Class


    SelfieFor this ingenious photographic work created by fifth graders, profile photos were taken of each student, cut out, and placed along with their own self-descriptive words on a piece of acetate. This was then positioned on solar-sensitive photo paper that exposed the profiles and surrounding descriptions, and mounted on wood. Coordinated by Nancy Renwick.Children of Thierry Annes 5th Grade Class

    The Pattern of UsInspired by the abstract, wallpapered work of artist Jill Ricci, the sixth graders used their budding painting skills to design and execute stencil patterns focused on personal interpretations of color, texture, text, pattern, and cultural symbols. Each student created four designs, from which one was chosen to be combined into a rich collage against a layered background gleaming with the rich colors and luster of an old Moroccan wall. Coordinated by Ursula Garcia.Students of Gilkey 6th Grade

    In Our NatureInspired by the London-based Chilean artist Francisca Prieto as well as the ancient Japanese arts of sumi-e painting and origami, the students have created a work that studies the subject of a person's inner identity. Each student chose an attribute to describe his/herself, and using the sumi-e ink and brush technique, illustrated that attribute through symbols of nature. Each student's square illustration was then folded and placed amongst those of his or her peers. Because the folded squares are closing up on themselves, each attribute becomes cocooned or partially hidden, much like our inner identity can be hidden from those around us. Coordinated by Carey Portzline.Students of Gilkey 7th Grade


    We Are What We EatOur eighth graders created a professionally bound, work-of-art cookbook. Each student painted their own page and wrote a homemade recipe focusing on our cultural diversity as represented though the food we eat. Complementing the recipes were drawings of the ingredients and the plants that they come from, connecting to the Bloom theme. Coordinated by Stephany Paull.Students of Gilkey 8th Grade
