FSAPS VOLUNTEERS ATTENDED RIVERS ALIVE EVENT
On Saturday, FSAPS had 8 volunteers representing our school. Our group placed markers at nearly 50 storm drains and placed hundreds of informational hanging door tags on homes in the area where storm drains were marked. The markers are placed to remind people not to put trash and chemicals of any sort into storm drains because they feed into the Chattahoochee River. Other groups picked up trash along trails and parks and were in boats in the river that covered the entire span of the Chattahoochee in Roswell.
Keep Roswell Beautiful organization collected over 1000 pounds of trash during this event.
FSAPS STUDENTS ENJOYED A GREAT CABIN CAMP!
FSA Robotics Team attended a wonderful cabin camp at Lake Lanier this past weekend. They spent all day working on their robots, presentations, and programming. When they weren't sleeping, eating, or working, they went outside and explored the acres of land. They went down to the lake and walked around on the dock. At night they sat around a campfire and roasted marshmallows, while they bonded as a team. Keep up the great work robotics team! This is what we call team spirit! Way to go!
Robotics team built and worked on 2014 FLL challenge projects and the robot. They used the New Lego Mindstorms platform EV3. In the camp, students were introduced important and complex aspects of Lego Mindstorms NXT and EV3 platform such as how to calibrate servomotors and color sensors.
A group of students from Future City Team and Turkish Olympiad Team joined the camp as well. Students had wonderful time, while preparing for their academic competitions.
GREAT JOB! FSAPS STUDENTS ARE SUBSCRIBED TO TIME KIDS!
Time for Kids is aligned with Common Core State Standards for language arts and social studies, and it is a wonderful supplement to our school programs. It is an excellent way for students to practice their learning standards while keeping up with world events, culture, and important news. Each edition of the magazine also includes interactive smart board activities and technology integration for increased student engagement and involvement in the classroom.
ANIME WEEKEND ATLANTA FIELD TRIP WAS FUN FOR EVERYONE!
This past Saturday, the FSAPS Anime Club students traveled to the AWA convention in Atlanta. Students and chaperones participated in workshops, selected to attend various panel presentations of interest, and watched shows where artists used Anime as a springboard for dramatic, visual, and/or musical interpretation.
Some of the favorites were “Aerial Anime” where acrobats performed famous Anime scenes on silk, “Shakespeare as told by Anime” where actors dressed as Anime characters reenacted famous Shakespeare scenes, and the ever-popular panel “Pokemon Vs. Digimon.” The great debate continues! We are already pumped for next year’s AWA convention. Only 362 more days to go…
