ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed our trip to Emory University last week! It was so much fun for me to see you all so interested and excited about college!

I'd like to congratulate our Science Olympiad Team on their historic victory over the weekend! Our HS students have worked so hard and it really shows! I'm so proud of you all for the long hours that you put in before and after school to make the team better!

FEELING STUCK?

1. Stop holding back. You owe it to yourself and your creator to step into your greatness. It's what you were born to do. Anything less will leave you living a life of regret.

2. Just Start. You don't need to have it all figured out, you just need to get started. One small action today, combined with another tomorrow gets you closer. No action = no movement.

3. Stop Listening to the Lies. Talk to yourself instead of listen to yourself [ watch this ].

4. It's Bigger Than You. Most of the time whatever you're called to do isn't really about you. It's about those who you will serve. Remember, a message can't get shared unless there is a messenger willing to share it. They need you.

5. You Can. Your circumstances don't define you. Your willingness does. Stop hiding behind the excuses and start stepping into your calling. I believe in you. Now, you need to believe in yourself.

I don't know what may be holding you back but I do know that no matter what it is, you can overcome it if you decide to do so. It might not be easy but I can promise you that it will be worth it.

I'm cheering for you!

LOST AND FOUND DONATIONS HAPPENING SOON; WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

FSA's Lost & Found is located in the back right corner of the cafeteria. There are many unclaimed items here in our Lost & Found. We are going to allow everyone 2 weeks to claim things they might have lost. On the first of each month we will be donating all unclaimed items to goodwill or a charity, on the behalf of the school. Things seem to be accumulating without people missing or searching for them. We'd rather see them go to a place where people would actually need them.


Please note that items with student names on them have been separated and will not be donated, but if you believe that your child is missing an item, please have them thoroughly check our Lost & Found. Again, in 2 weeks, all unclaimed items without names WILL be donated.

High School Science Olympiad Team Places 2nd at Regionals and Qualifies for State Tournament

Big picture

The FSA High School Science Olympiad Team made school history as it won the 2nd place team trophy at the Georgia Tech Regional on Saturday and earned a spot at the State Tournament at Emory University on March 23, 2019.

FSA earned medals in 11 events and scored in the top ten in 21 of 23 events. Forsyth South High School won the tournament, but FSA bested some of the biggest public and private high schools in the state, including Collins Hill, North Gwinnett, South Cobb, and Woodward Academy. “Today demonstrated the importance of entering every event even if you think you are not prepared and that consistency across all events wins tournaments even if you don't win any individual medals,” head coach Pam Walsh told the team following the tournament.

“Our building events placed surprisingly well,” said events coach Yasin Parlak. “Typically, it is the building events that bring down a team’s score, but we medaled in nearly all of them.” Twin brothers Enes and Mehmet played a big role in the team’s success taking first place in Boomilever and Mousetrap Vehicle and second in Mission Possible. Charlie F., Brad, Nick and Aubrey anchored the team’s academic events. Team Captain Nick had an event in each of the five time slots and placed in the top 7 for each.


Medals were earned in the following events:

Boomilever

  • 1st Place – Enes and Mehmet

Code Busters

  • 1st Place – Charlie F., Brad, Enes

Mousetrap Vehicle

  • 1st Place – Mehmet and Enes

Say Something Week

Big picture
February 25th – March 1st is “Say Something Week”. According to the Sandy Hook Promise website, those who are at-risk of hurting themselves or others often show signs and signals before an act of violence takes place. Say Something Week encourages adults and students to learn the signs of someone who may be heading down the path towards violence. By knowing the signs, you have the power to intervene and get help for that person. Your actions could save lives.


KNOW THE SIGNS

People who are at-risk of hurting themselves or others often show signs and signals before an act of violence takes place. When you don’t know what to look for, it can be easy to miss signs, or dismiss them as unimportant, sometimes with tragic consequences.


It’s important to know that one warning sign on its own does not mean a person is planning an act of violence. But when many connected or cumulative signs are observed over a period of time, it could mean that the person is heading down a pathway towards violence or self-harm. By knowing the signs, you have the power to intervene and get help for that person. Your actions can save lives.

the ride of the 79th

Big picture
I am very excited about sharing this link *https://ride79.com* with all of you! This is more of a personal project my husband, mother in law and, I have been working on for a while. As some of you know, my husband is part of the USA military as well as his grandfather and father were. His grandfather was part of the D-Day and as a way to honor his and many other soldiers' sacrifices, we have decided to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day by riding the route of his grandfather’s unit, the 79th Infantry Division (315th Regiment), from start to finish. They landed at Utah beach in Normandy France on June 14, 1944 and made their way through France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and finally the Czech Republic. This project will be a physical challenge for us but also a very rewarding opportunity to revisit, honor our past, give remembrance to individual soldiers’ stories, learn about history and culture, make friends, gain experiences, and raise funds for the Green Beret Foundation. I ask everybody to please help me in sharing this link with your friends, social media, spreading the word to people that may be interested in joining us, donating or simple re-sharing this beautiful idea.
