EXCELLENCE, INNOVATION, CHARACTER

Week of May 14, 2018


PRINCIPAL'S CORNER


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,


Just like that we are in our last two weeks of school! Where has the time gone?


Our Mathletes made their way to DC to compete in the National MATHCOUNTS Competition over the last few days. We just got results that the GA MATHCOUNTS Team placed 14th as a team out of 56 teams in the 2018 National MATHCOUNTS! Nick A., a 6th grader, performed best among the GA team members and received the High Scorer Award. One more question on the team round would have placed us 8th as a team in the nation. In preparation, the team met 3-4 times a week and about 15-20 hours per week for the last 6 weeks with the GA Team! They also conducted lock-ins and multiple workshops! Coach Duzyol says, "Thank you so much for all of your support." #cheerforGA #lovechallenges #loveofmath #grit #nevergiveup #teamwork #teamGeorgia #keeplearning #hardwork #thereisalwaysroomforimprovement


I want to continue by congratulating our amazing Elementary chess team! They competed at the US Chess Federation Elementary K-6 National Championship in Nashville Tennessee from May 11 - 13! We will have more detailed results shortly, but for now, please be sure to check out their section below for Blitz, Championship, individual, and Bughouse Awards and a look at their impressive trophies!


Our FLL and Science Olympiad Teams leave THIS THURSDAY, May 17 for their competitions! FLL will be competing in the North American Championship in California, and Science Olympiad will be competing at Nationals in Colorado! Good luck to these teams and coaches as they travel and compete in these exciting competitions!


I also want to wish good luck to our Destination Imagination Teams as they travel to Knoxville, Tennessee on May 21st for the Global Finals! These teams include "Savages are Cabbages," "Maze Maniacs," and "D.I. Dare Devils."


Lastly, our Spring STEAM Expo was held last Friday! This is a display of the STEAM projects done by our students each semester and it is always so impressive to see the projects that the students come up with! Be sure to keep an eye on FSA's Facebook Page for a video of the event that should go out some time this week!

State Recognition


Arnav A., Seth D., Pranav D., Jake F., Chase J., Ryvath M., Rohan M., Sam S., Elizabeth S., Pranavkrishan S., Nina T., Trent U., Hannah W., Richard Y., and Kevin Y., all seventh-grade students from Fulton Science Academy in Alpharetta, are among the students being honored by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) for their exceptional scores on the ACT or SAT. They will be recognized at a ceremony at Georgia Southern University (Statesboro, Georgia) in The Nessmith-Lane Center (on GSU’s campus) on Thursday, May 17 at 6:30 p.m.. Duke TIP’s 7th Grade Talent Search identifies students across the United States who have scored at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level standardized test. As part of the program, these academically talented students take above-level college-entrance exams to learn more about their abilities. Duke TIP then hosts annual recognition ceremonies to honor the seventh graders who scored the highest on these ACT or SAT exams.


“We are extremely proud to recognize our remarkably talented students who have demonstrated key aspects of their academic potential by achieving scores on the ACT or SAT commensurate with half of all college-bound high school seniors,” says Shawna Young, Executive Director of Duke TIP. “As an alum of our 7th Grade Talent Search, I still remember how it felt to be recognized by Duke and TIP in seventh grade, as well as my excitement and anxiety at taking the SAT at such a young age. As an organization, we cherish the opportunity to celebrate each of our ceremonies honorees for such an outstanding accomplishment.”


Working with host academic institutions, Duke TIP sponsors thirty-six ceremonies in sixteen states throughout April, May, and June. Speakers include university administrators and professors from the host institutions, state and government officials, and accomplished former Duke TIP students. For a complete list of ceremony locations, dates, and times, please see Duke TIP’s State Ceremony schedule.

2018 Summer Rowing Camps

Big picture

Have you tried every sport and not found your niche or maybe just looking for something new this summer? Why not learn to row? Did you know that we have some FSA Students on the SARC!?


Our programs are for any rising 6th through 12th grader who wishes to learn about the sport of rowing. Campers will learn rowing safety, boat handling, terminology, and beginner thru advanced rowing techniques, all while enjoying a beautifully wooded area along the Chattahoochee River.


Our experienced coaching staff and seasoned athlete-volunteers make the SARC experience like none other. You will learn about the sport through hands on experience in eight and four-man rowing shells with the most continuous time on the water of any rowing camp in the Metro Area. Research has linked rowing to improved academic performance, physiological health, mental health and social interactions. Rowing builds character and promotes leadership skills while working in a team environment and is known to reduce the stress often associated with single player sports.


As the oldest intercollegiate sport in the US, rowing is widely supported throughout the country. In 2017, over 152 Colleges and Universities sponsored a varsity rowing team. Over 41,000 US High School students participate in a school sponsored or club program with a large percent moving on to compete at the college level. Depending on the school size, NCAA ranking and focus, there are tremendous athletic scholarship available from top Universities.


We’ve seen kids who never thought of themselves as having coordination or a competitive drive discover their inner strength, gain confidence, and learn to love the thrill of competition. In short, even the non-athletes learn the value of teamwork and become athletes.

So start your journey and learn to row this summer! Join our half day or full day week long sessions or enroll in a 2 week program.

7th grader seth d. needs your help

"My parents came from a small town in Philippines called Bicol. We went there when I was little and I can still remember the fresh air, the simpleness of life and the purest heart of the kids I played with. But I came back home with a heavy heart thinking of the unfortunate kids my age. As I grew up, I had always thought of a way to give back to the community who gave my parents their simple but happy childhood.

Before my parents immigrated to the United States, they had helped many people in the Philippines thrive. They had given money, food, clothes, and shelter to those who had needed them. Their actions have impacted mine, and to continue their acts of kindness to those who couldn’t support themselves, it would have been only the greatest honor to follow their legacy of helping others.

A few months ago, my parent’s hometown was struck with a volcanic eruption where families were displaced in evacuation centers. The evacuation centers were public schools which disrupted the children’s education for months. Our family purchased second-hand clothes, sent 12 boxes and distributed to the displaced families. My aunt’s foundation also helped in feeding and provided some groceries. As of this time, most of the families have returned home but the help does not stop there….

School will start in June and some kids will not even have papers to write on or shoes to wear or even food to eat. So friends, classmates and families, I humbly ask if you can spare some change to help these kids to provide school supplies and perhaps provide nutritious food. I have set-up a “Go Fund Me”, a “Patreon” and of course a jar in school lobby where you can drop some extra change. We hope that you can help these kids receive the education that they deserve. Thank you. My target for school year 2018-19 is $500 to purchase school supplies for about 100 first graders of Barayong Elementary School.

Here are some photos during our family’s past relief distribution."

reminder: safe driving on campus

Please remember that the speed limit is 15 mph on the school campus and there is a stop sign at both the entrance and exit. We have had some instances where people tend to drive a little too fast and don't make complete stops at the stop signs.


In an effort to keep our students safe, please remember to drive the 15 mph speed limit while on campus and please make complete stops at both the entrance and exit stop signs. Also, please be mindful of the staff members directing traffic.

Take Control Of Spring Allergies: A message from the school Nurse

Spring Allergies are often caused by tree pollen.


Common Symptoms are:

  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Wheezing
  • Itchy Ears & Throat
  • Sneezing
  • Runny Nose



Tips for Avoiding Pollen:

  • Keep windows closed.
  • Wash your hands, face, and body when coming inside from the outdoors.
  • Remove clothes after being outdoors. Consider putting a hamper for soiled clothes outside of the bedroom.
  • Do not hang clothes or linens outside to dry.
  • Avoid outdoor activities between 5am and 10am when pollens are more prevalent.
  • Skin testing by a board certified pediatric allergist is the best was to diagnose your spring allergy triggers.

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.

Home Visits - A Fun Way to meet your teachers!

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.


Simply email junal@fultonscienceacademy.org with some suggested dates/times, as well as your students' name(s) and homeroom assignments. Ms. Unal will be in touch to confirm final details.
