Family School Alliance (FSA)

The Family School Alliance includes all CAIS parents and guardians of students and is focused on supporting the school’s mission, values and programs through volunteer service, community building and events.

All parents and guardians of students as well as all faculty and staff are automatically members of the CAIS FSA and are invited to attend general meetings. CAIS faculty members—represented by the early childhood, lower and middle school directors—have an important voice and are encouraged to attend.


FSA organizes a variety of events and activities which draw our community together socially, including:

  • Mid-Autumn Moon Festival/Back to School Potluck
  • Fall and Spring Family Camping Weekends
  • Holiday Faire
  • CAIS’s participation in the San Francisco Chinese New Year parade
  • End of Year Potluck


FSA meets monthly during the school year, at the Oak campus, from 8:15 a.m.—9:15 a.m. The dates are included on the FSA view of the CAIS School Calendar. Please join us!
