Parent Groups

Our school wouldn't be what it is without the generous support of our parent volunteer groups, which never stop in helping us fulfill our mission of being a "family oriented" school. Whether planning major campus events such as the annual spring Worldfest or seasonal fall Harvest Party, assisting teachers to organize individual classroom events, or running the concession stand at athletic events, our parent volunteers are truly invaluable. 

Below are a few of the important parent groups that help make the school's events possible. 

Parent Teacher Group (PTG)

Both campuses have an active PTG that assists the schools in countless ways.

The mission of the PTG is to:

• Facilitate unity between the parents and the school community thus enriching the lives of our children.
• Support the educational environment through open communication and a close relationship between home and school.
• Organize activities to enhance the “Spirit of Community."
• Support the overall school mission.

The PTG's mission is achieved through a variety of activities and services organized and administered by the group. Major events include Applefest and Worldfest on the Oberursel Campus, and Harvest Fest and Summer fete on the Wiesbaden Campus. In between, a host of other family-oriented events, school service projects, new student orientations, and Visiting Authors Programs are sponsored by the PTG.

PTG members also volunteer as room parents, library volunteers, book fair coordinators, and classroom volunteers who work in many different capacities.

PTG country coordinators are also available to welcome new families and answer questions in many languages.

PTG meetings are held once a month and are open to all parents.

Athletic Booster Club (ABC)

The main goals of the Athletic Booster Club are to encourage parental support for the FIS athletic program and its student athletes, and to provide funds to enhance the athletic program within the school. 

Funds are raised via the school Bookstore and profit from the concession stand sales of food and drink at matches and at Saturday Sports. In past years these funds have enabled the school to buy a variety of sports equipment.

All Athletic Booster Club activities are organized by volunteers. The club meets monthly in the Athletic Booster Club area in front of the FIS Upper School concession stand.

Supporters of the Performing Arts (SPA)

SPA is a parent-run organization whose mission it is to support the performing arts at FIS. SPA members meet approximately five times per school year to discuss upcoming performing arts events, and determine what is needed to support them.

SPA support comes in the form of pre-performance ticket sales, creating and distributing programs, collection of tickets during performances, and selling beverages and snacks during intermissions. All money raised by SPA is donated to the Performing Arts Department at FIS.

More information about SPA is available to FIS Community members by logging in here.
