FSA Book Drive and Literary Book Character Dress Up

BOYS vs. GIRLS: Bring in gently used books from now until March 31st and put them in the bins in the front office. We are requesting books for adults and children such as; children's books, juvenile fiction, adult fiction, historical fiction, self-help, business books, cookbooks, etc. The winners will receive a frozen treat as their reward.

Anyone bringing in two or more books can participate in a literary character dress up day on Thursday March 26th. Please make sure that your book character costume is approved by me. :)

Books will be used to stock our library shelves or used to trade in for more books through our partner Read-It-Again.

Spirit Night - Join us at Read-It-Again on Friday March 27th 4-8 pm.

Shop a huge selection of new and used books and unique gifts. Proceeds will be used by FSAPS to purchase additional books for the school!

Square 1 Art Fundraiser

You have received a flyer from Mrs. Millar a few weeks ago concerning the Square 1 Art fundraiser. It's a neat opportunity to celebrate your child's artistic achievement while supporting our school. You're able to order keepsakes containing your child's artwork, including mugs, totes, and more! The fundraiser will be raising money for new supplies for our new school next year. Check out www.square1art.com/shop for gift ideas and contact Mrs. Millar at rmillar@fultonscienceacademy.org for more information!
