Volunteering

Volunteering is one of the most significant and valuable ways to give to FIS. Through the generous dedication and commitment of time, expertise, creativity and spirit, our parent volunteers strengthen the bonds within our culturally diverse student, teaching and family communities on both FIS campuses. Similar to financial donations, volunteering directly impacts and improves the learning and teaching at FIS and helps us to better achieve our mission of being a family-oriented international school.

Whether helping at one of the school's major events or assisting teachers with individual classroom activities, sewing costumes and building stage scenery, or running the concession stand during athletic events, volunteering makes a meaningful difference to you and your child's overall experience at FIS. We truly appreciate the generous contribution our parent volunteers make to our school, and invite and encourage you to join them in this honorable form of giving. Whether for a weekend, a day or a few hours, please consider volunteering at one of our community events or in the classroom and see how your generosity enriches our community and helps make FIS a home away from home.

In addition to individual volunteer opportunities in our classrooms and libraries, several established groups within the school provide volunteer opportunities for school-wide, athletics and performing arts events as well.

Parent Teacher Groups (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.  The group's country coordinators are also often available to welcome new families and answer questions in their native language.

PTG meetings are held bi-monthly and are open to all parents.

The Athletic Booster Club

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 with a mission to support the performing arts department’s performances and, in turn, the performing students at FIS. Support from the group 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.

The group meets several times during the year to discuss upcoming events and the ways in which it can assist. SPA Coordinators for various arts (Band, Choir, Orchestra, Drama and Dance), maintain close contact with their respective leaders in the performing arts department.

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