The Fulton Science Academy Private School Science Olympiad Team qualified for the National Science Olympiad Tournament by placing second at the Georgia state tournament held at Lambert High School on March 19, 2016. The team had its best performance in team history, besting last year’s state score by twenty points. FSA team members earned medals in eighteen of the twenty-three events and its lowest event placement was seventh out of twenty-six of the state’s top teams.


Head Coaches Pam Walsh and Gloria Stathos were especially proud of the team’s performance.


“Our students exuded a calm confidence throughout the day,” said Gloria Stathos. “They came out of each event feeling they were well-prepared and had done their best.” Pam Walsh said, “In the past, we’ve always had at least one event that for whatever reason did not go as planned, but this year, our students left nothing to chance and it showed. All of our building events worked as expected and we give a lot of credit to our Building event coach, Yasin Parlak. This is his first year coaching Science Olympiad and he has done an outstanding job mentoring his students. ”


The team now will spend evenings and weekends preparing for the National Science Olympiad Tournament to be held May 18-21 at the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menominee, WI.


Congratulations to all students, teachers and parent coaches for this wonderful achievement.


Individual awards were earned by the following students:

That aside, what better way to set an example of volunteering to students and to the community than by volunteering his time.

St. Patrick's Day Celebrations!

March 17th Kindergarten Mischief

St. Patrick’s Day morning (March 17th) was filled with mischief and fun for the kindergarteners. Pat the Leprechaun had visited both classrooms overnight and left more than a few surprises! The classrooms definitely looked a little more disheveled than usual and the kids had a great time cleaning up from that pesky leprechaun, but the best part was the riddle-filled scavenger hunt! Students solved clever riddles as a group and traveled around the school to try and find Pat’s pot o’ gold. Alas, he evaded us once again. However, great fun was had by all and the plastic coins we found were almost as exciting as the real thing!

FSA Health Policy Reminder

It seems that cold and flu season is upon us and in full swing. We would like to remind you of our school policy regarding communicable illnesses and give you some helpful tips for staying healthy. We are beginning to see a lot of students at the front office with communicable illnesses and many of them mention that they were sick before leaving home, but their parents encouraged them to come to school. Please let me remind you that control measures and periods of exclusion are very important at a time like this in order to keep down the spread of these illnesses.

If we all follow these guidelines and simple steps, it will help to combat the spread of illness throughout our school and in your homes.


School guidelines regarding communicable illness:

1. The student should remain at home until being symptom free for 24 hours. This means that your child may not return to school until 24 hours from their last vomiting or diarrhea episode.

2. If the student experiences a fever during an illness, they should be “fever free” for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication before returning to school.

3. If the diagnosis is strep throat, the student should remain at home for 24 hours after starting the first dose of antibiotic treatment.

4. During any communicable illness, the student should be symptom free and fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has the flu, they should provide a doctor's note stating they can return to school.

NATIONAL CHESS TOURNAMENT

2016 National Chess Tournament for K-12 students will be held in Atlanta on April 1 - 3. This is a great opportunity for our students to play chess at national level. If you are interested, please register your child at http://www.uschess.org/tournaments/2016/hs/

CMP: The theme for March is Trustworthiness


Trustworthiness- I will try my best to be fair and reliable in all of my thoughts and actions

Student Council Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who donated to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a childhood cancer charity!


We raised $115.

Dr Erkans CMP Rainbow Results

Dr. Erkan's CMP class supported a campaign started by Kathy Cobb to benefit children through "Lady T's Homeless Ministry". Kathy Cobb is a writer and also the founder of GWG-Gabbin' With the Girls, a global friendship organization. In our school, we started this project called "Rainbow Project" and set out boxes to collect colored pencils/crayons and coloring books. We collected 60 coloring books and 115 boxes of colored pencils/crayons. Our CMP class had a wonderful time doing this project and thank you all for your donations to help children in need!

Mrs. Peacock’s 7th Grade Boys CMP Class

Themes explored this year together as a class include: Empathy & Communication, Bullying Prevention, Emotional Management, and Decision Making/Problem Solving.

We have just finished analyzing the characters and their traits in the movie “August Rush”. The title character is a musical prodigy, which has never known his parents, but never doubts that they exist and are searching for him. His parents, he believes are speaking to him through music. August hears their love for him in the music that surrounds him, and he answers back to his parents through that music he creates.

This music driven movie demonstrates the power of music to evoke emotion and to communicate to others. We are working through a variety of activities are designed to encourage students to explore the ways in which music enhances their life on a daily basis. Various types of relationships and connections in August Rush define and shape the people and outcomes in the story,. They demonstrate how crucial and interconnected different relationships in life really are.

Students are continuing to explore together: emotions that different circumstances evoke, identify ways to best communicate and express themselves, and how to best support others around them.

Clubs

Soccer- the beautiful game!

Middle School Soccer club has been a blast this year. We have played many games consistently mixing up the students to make sure they understand how their peers react under pressure and in game play. The students have been learning through game play to maneuver, pass, and score. Students have been playing in multiple player positions to discover what positions they need work on and what positions they are doing well at. The player camaraderie, talent and sportsmanship among the students is nothing shy of impressive. FSA soccer club is full of heart, stamina and determination.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking Club plays games that emphasize different speaking skills. This past week we turned speaking into a new competition. Each group member gave an impromptu speech on a word drawn from a hat. The speech has to adhere to specific speaking requirements. For instance, if the speech lasted a minute, they earn points. If they used filler words such as um, like, or yeah, they lost points. The students loved the game, and many discovered their competitive spirits. We will continue to work on our speaking skills through fun, interactive games.

Crochet Club

The Crochet Club girls are having a great time stitching their way through new skills this quarter. The girls have learned to chain, single crochet, double crochet, and will soon be working on increasing and decreasing to create different shapes. We are so excited to start stitching new spring colors for the warm weather season, and look forward to showing off our new projects!
