The Mustang Players Present 'Typecast' (A one act play)

ON Thursday April 25 and Friday April 26, the mustang players showed everyone the most recent production they have been working on!


Type cast is a one-act comedy revolving around a middle-school play production in which all the roles have been mixed up. The shy and quiet girl ends up playing Prince Charming. The Stage Manager ends up with the leading role. The soccer coach--after a bizarre string of events--ends up directing. Through the course of the production, these characters are forced from their comfort zones, and in the process, end up learning about themselves.


The reviews from staff were full of praise for the cast and directors. Assistant Principal Mrs. Griffis said "Thoroughly enjoyed!! Such a fun show! Great job by all!" while ELA teacher Ms. Crockett said, that Typecast was "a great play and fun for even tiny children!" Principal Sener said, "You have truly made a difference in the lives of our students." Math Department Chair and Head Math Olympiad Coach Mrs. Duzyol said, "I am totally impressed!! I have enjoyed every second of it!! [Ms. Outler and Ms. Rogers] have made such a difference in these students' lives! I am so happy that I was able to attend." And High School Counselor Ms. Agha said, "There are no real words to describe the growth I’ve seen in the personalities I thought I knew. Thank you [Ms. Outler and Ms. Rogers] for your work which has resulted in the growth of our children. You both have put in countless hours. I appreciate you guys beyond what words can express. This play was such a joy!"


Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Mustang Players and fantastic job to Ms. Outler and Ms. Rogers and the whole cast and crew!

Thank you to everyone who came out for International Night!

Students Tour Our Nation's Capital

Big picture

Twenty-nine students, eight parents, and three staff members spent this past weekend touring Washington DC. The trip began early Friday morning as everyone gathered at the airport for a 6:15 flight. Landing in Baltimore at 8:00 AM, the group met up with their tour guide and bus driver and headed to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to get a look at the White House and Lafayette Park. As we approached, we saw the Marine One helicopter pass by the Washington Monument with President Trump on his way to speak to the NRA. The group next headed to the WWII memorial where we saw a group of veterans on an Honor Flight visit.


After lunch, our group headed to the Russell building to meet with staff members from Senator Johnny Isakson’s office. Students asked lots of probing questions and learned about what a Senator does and what it takes to work for the Senator. The Senator’s office arranged special passes for us to ride the Senate train to the Capitol building for a guided tour. After dinner and a quick shopping trip at Pentagon City Mall, the group headed to the motel.

Saturday morning’s activities began with a tour of Arlington National Cemetery where we viewed President Kennedy’s gravesite and witnessed the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. Next it was over to the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museums. Students enjoyed seeing Dorothy’s ruby slippers and Superman’s cape at the American History Museum and the Hope Diamond and gem collection and the butterfly and insect exhibit at the Natural History Museum. The evening’s activity included a trip to the National Harbor along the DC waterfront. There, students enjoyed dinner, shopping (especially the Peep store!), and riding the Ferris wheel.

On Sunday, the group headed to the Air and Space Museum near Dulles airport where we saw the Space Shuttle Discovery and the Concorde, rode in several flight simulators, took in the view from the Observation deck. Then, it was on to the Newseum where students viewed a portion of the Berlin Wall, the 9/11 exhibit, and had an opportunity to sit at the newsdesk and report the news. From there, we made quick stop at the Lincoln Memorial and then headed to the airport for the flight home.

Special thanks to Mr. Turan for planning such a fun and educational trip, Mrs. Sanchez for keeping us healthy and safe, and our parent chaperones Mr. Koenders, Dr. Hall, Mr. Neil, Mrs. Giles, Mrs. Chang, Mrs. Kalayci, Mrs. Fernandez, and Mrs. Killam for keeping track of everyone.

IMMUNIZATIONS REQUIREMENTS FOR INCOMMING 7TH GRADERS & KINDERGARTEN:

A Message From Nurse Amy

This is to remind you of the importance of getting your son or daughter vaccinated before they go back to school this fall. Vaccines are the best way you can protect your child from a number of serious diseases, including meningococcal disease, and cancers caused by HPV, and whooping cough.


As you are making your back-to-school checklist for your preteen, I encourage you to make sure your sons and daughters get all the vaccines that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends for them at ages 11 and 12. Schedule an appointment today for your child to receive all of the vaccines they need for the best protection. CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), and the National Association for School Nurses all agree that your preteen needs the following vaccines:

  • Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY) protects against some of the bacteria that cause meningococcal disease and meningitis. While not very common, these are very serious illnesses and death can occur in as little as 48 hours. Your child will need a booster shot at age 16 to continue providing protection into the late teens/early 20’s.

  • HPV vaccine protects against the infections that can cause HPV cancer. HPV infection is very common and causes more than 31,000 cases of cancer each year in the Unites States; that’s one case of cancer diagnosed every 17 minutes. Both boys and girls should complete the HPV vaccine series before age 13. Preteens need two doses of HPV vaccine, given six to twelve months apart. If you wait, your child may need three doses over six months.

  • One dose of Tdap vaccine as a booster is for continued protection against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). This vaccine keeps preteens healthy and prevents spread of pertussis to babies who are too young to be protected by vaccination.

  • Preteens and teens should also get the flu vaccine every year, ideally by the end of October if possible.


The State of Georgia requires the Meningococcal (MCV4), and a Tdap (booster) vaccines be done for school entry; to learn more about state immunization requirements, go to: www.immunize.org/laws.


To learn more about adolescent vaccines, please visit CDC’s website for parents about vaccines for children at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents, or you can visit www.middleschoolhealth.org for the Middle School Health Starts Here website.

FSA High School Students are collecting Donations for "Hunger has no Religion"

Big picture

With April being national month for volunteering two FSA students Ashi Jain and Serene Haque have embarked on a service project to assist where they can. There is a large amount of people who are affected by homelessness. As this number rises daily there is a scarcity of resources.

Following a presentation to high school in the professional speaker series, two 9th graders decided to lend a hand. They have started a hygiene product drive here at FSA for Hunger Has No Religion, an organization dedicated to fight homelessness in Atlanta. The main purpose of the organisation is to provide homeless people with hygiene care packages to them. Donny Edwards, the founder if Hunger Has No Religion, visited our school recently and enlightened us about the gravity of homelessness and why we should all come together to help. We need your help to collect items such as soap, toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and deodorant. Each item collected goes a long way to provide essential and basic hygiene to one who does not have access to this vital necessity. Please donate to this worthy cause as there is no greater satisfaction or overwhelming feeling as the feeling of pleasure and earnest gratitude that is expressed by the people that need us.

Senior Letters!

Within the school, we will offer students the chance to write their seniors a parting Senior Letter.


This opportunity is not exclusive to students and faculty as we want to extend this to outside individuals as well. Seniors letters will be distributed to the students in May before graduation.


Ms. Agha will have envelopes to place your letter if you need one.


To send a letter for your senior, you can give it to Ms. Agha or mail it to:

Home Visits; A Great Activity for Your Student, No Matter Their Grade Level!

Home visits are a casual way for your child to spend time with his/her teacher in the comfort of their home. Teachers enjoy having a chance to see children in this comfortable environment, doing whatever makes them most happy and spend time with children and their parents outside of a regular school day.

Here is some feedback from our parents:

  • “Early in the school year, a group of teachers took the time to come to our home to meet us and discuss the school program with us. That event brought us back to the time in which schooling was a true partnership between parent and teacher and reaffirmed in our minds that FSA truly cares about the development of our children”
  • “We even had two teachers visit us at our home. They were a pleasure to meet and we could clearly see how much they enjoy teaching students.”
  • “Thank you very much for your visit and the chocolates yesterday. We enjoyed having you over very much. I also want to thank you for turning math from the most complicated and somewhat scary subject into one of our most favorites.”
  • “We all enjoyed your visit last night to our home. It was such a pleasure to informally get to know both of you. My son thought it was really cool that two teachers came to his house. He talked about it the whole way to school this morning in carpool. Personally, I admire the dedication you both have for your jobs. It makes a big difference in a student’s attitude toward school. Your visit left no doubt in my mind that FSA was the right decision for my son.”
  • “I just wanted to write on behalf of my husband and I and thank you for visiting our child. He loved having you both come and visit. We appreciate the level of caring and attention that you have consistently shown our family. It is rare to see such a dedication from teachers for their jobs. We can tell that you love teaching and you care for our children. Thank you for visiting our child when he was not feeling well.”

Very simple.

School Medicine Policy 2018 - 2019 (Includes FAQ)

OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATIONS

Aspirin, Tylenol, Neosporin, and other patient over-the-counter drugs are not available through FSAPS. Should you wish for your child to have access to these medications, you must sign an
‘Authorization to Administer Medication Form’ and leave a supply with the front office.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS

The medication to be administered by designated school personnel must be sent directly from the pharmacy or physician’s office or brought to school by the student’s parent/guardian. The school must receive an ‘Authorization to Administer Medication Form’ signed by the student’s physician and/or parent/guardian.

The following information must be printed clearly on the medication container:

  • Student’s Name

  • Name of the medication

  • Dosage

  • Time the medication must be taken.

    Bring in only the amount of medication that is needed for a school day. In the case of prolonged need, send in the amount for a clearly specified period. Written authorization to dispense medications shall be limited to two weeks unless otherwise prescribed by a physician. Medication shall only be dispensed out of its original container, which must be labeled with the child’s name. Extra medication will not be sent home with a student. All medication will be kept in a secure location in the clinic and/or front office.


Parents, please remind your students that if they are feeling unwell that they need to first visit the clinic and be assessed by our school nurse, who will then call you in the event that the student should go home. Students should not use their phones during the school day to contact parents.


FAQ:

  • Does the school provide medications?

No. The school does not provide medication. The student's parent or guardian must bring the student's medicine to the front office or school clinic, along with an "Authorization to Give Medication" Form.

  • May the parent/guardian bring and give medications to their student?

Yes, a parent/guardian may come to school and give their child medication. Parents should still follow the visitor sign in procedures.

  • Where can I find Authorization Forms?

Authorization forms can be found at the front desk or school clinic.

  • Why do I need a doctor's health care provider's note for adult strength over-the-counter medication when my health care provider has told me it is appropriate for my student's weight (or condition)?

The school nurse wants to protect your child and must follow guidelines for dosage recommended by the manufacturer.

  • How do students get their medications during after school hours?

The principal, along with administration and the school nurse will determine by whom and how medication will be secured and administered during after school hours.

  • Why do medications have to be in the original container?

The original container provides information from the manufacturer about over-the-counter medications, including the name of the medication, the proper dose, how the medication should be given, how often the medication should be given, possible side effects, and when the medication is no longer effective (an expiration date.)

The original prescription container includes the name of the medication, the patient's name, the prescribing licensed health care provider, the proper dose, how and when it should be given, when the medication expires, and the pharmacy where the medication was purchased. All of this information is necessary for the school nurse to administer medication in a safe manner.

  • What if my child's medication or dosage changes?

Parents/Guardians must inform the school nurse of any medication changes. New medication or different doses will not be given unless the parent completes a new medication form. The information on the prescription bottle label must match the new consent form.

  • Can my child take herbal medication at school?

No. Over-the-counter diet pills, vitamins, dietary supplements, including minerals or herbs will not be given.

  • May my child carry cough drops at school?

No. Cough-drops must be left in the clinic along with a completed "Authorization to Give Medication at School" Form.

  • May my child carry over the counter medication at school?

No. It must be left in the clinic along with and "Authorization to Give Medication at School" Form.

  • Can my child carry his/her Epipen, Insulin, or Asthma Inhaler at school?

Yes, students may carry inhalers and Epipens or insulin with a completed "Authorization to Carry Prescription Medication" Form. You can get this form from the school nurse.

  • Why is there a place for the health care provider to sign the authorization form for my child to carry their inhaler/epipen at school?

The health care provider's signature indicates that your child has been instructed on the proper use of their inhaler/Epipen and that your child is responsible for administering it to himself/herself without supervision.

  • Why do I have to have a prescription label on the inhaler/Epipen?

The prescription on the inhaler/epipen includes the child's name, how often it is to be used, and what dose is appropriate for your child. It is difficult to keep the label directly on the inhaler/epipen.

  • If I give my child Tylenol for a fever, can I still send them to school?

If the fever is more than 100.9 degrees F before you give them Tylenol, then your child cannot come to school. Your child may return to school when his/her temperature is below 101 degrees F without Tylenol or any other fever reducing medication for 24 hours, if s/he feels well and is not showing signs of illness.

  • If I give my child Tylenol for aches and pains can I still send them to school?

You child is welcome at school while taking Tylenol or any other over-the-counter medication for an injury, dental work, etc. However, if the medication is for a sore throat, earache or flu like symptoms, please keep them at home.

  • Why can't I put medicine in my child's lunch box if he/she has to take medicine at lunch?

Medication in a lunch box could be lost or taken by another child. If a staff member found the medication it could be considered an illegal drug with consequences according to the Code of Conduct. Medications must be brought to the front office or school clinic by parents/guardians in the original and properly labeled container.

  • If I treat my child for lice can I send them back to school the same day?
Yes. Please bring your child free of live lice back to the school nurse to be rechecked.
  • Why do I have to bring in a box top to verify lice treatment?
A box top from the product provides the School Nurse with the treatment type that was used and confirms that treatment was provided for the child since a prescription is not necessary.
  • How much time do I have to get to the school if the nurse calls me to pick up my child because he/she is sick?
You, or a person you designate, should arrive within one hour of being called. Most school clinics have an area where your child can rest for a short period of time. If your child has a fever of 104 degrees F or higher, you, or a person you designate must arrive as soon as possible.
  • How long will my child's over-the-counter medication be given at school?
Over-the-counter medication may be given with the parent/guardian permission as needed throughout the school year. A health care provider's note is required for over-the-counter medication that is given for more than 10 consecutive school days.
  • What happens to my child's medication at the end of the school year?
All medications not picked up by parents/guardians by the last day of school will be destroyed.
  • May my child share over-the-counter medication with another student?
No. Students may not share any medication, whether over-the-counter or prescription. Doing so could be a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and could also result in the student losing his/her privilege of carrying medication on his/her person.
  • Why should my child take the first dose of new medication at home?
We want your student back to school as soon as possible after an illness, diagnosis, or medication change. It is for the safety of your student that you observe him/her for any unsuspected reactions to a new medication and report it to the prescribing licensed health care provider.

aftercare hours reminder


Parents, please be reminded that After - School Care is provided every day from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm for a fee of $15.00 per day or $200.00 for the month. We ask that parents pick up any remaining students by 6:00 pm, and no later, as the school closes at 6:00pm. Sometimes our Academic Teams will stay later, but these students are not considered to be in After-Care. There are also sometimes outside organizations that use our facility for sports events, so it may look like there are still plenty of people here, but these more often than not, do not include aftercare students. Thank you for your understanding.
