Week of March 5, 2018

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,


Welcome back to another week as we enter the month of March!

I want to begin by congratulating our Model UN Team who came in 2nd place overall at the Coastal Georgia Model UN Competition last week! The team has worked so hard to get to this point and I am so proud of all that they have accomplished this year! Congratulations to all of the students and coaches on all of your hard work!

Next I want to congratulate our High School Math Team. The FSA High School Math Team placed 1st as a team at the Columbus State Math Tournament at the varsity level on Saturday, March 3rd, as well as individual awards. Also, Holden W., (9th grade) placed 6th and Darwin K., (11th grade) placed 21st at Kennesaw State University High School Math Tournament among 173 top high school students in GA! This is a great achievement! You can read more about both of these events as well as other great Math News and wins below!
I want to congratulate our young Chess players on their results from their state qualifier tournament over the weekend! The K-3 Section came in 1st place and the 6-8 section did very well despite only having 2 team members! We still do not have results for the 6-8 section, however. I am always impressed by their hard work and ability to compete so well under pressure! There is also a One Day Chess Camp on March 9th by Chess ATL so be sure to read further about that in it's section below!
Be sure to check out the pictures of some of our wonderful Destination Imagination Teams from the Regional Showcase! Amazing work from all of the teams! Next up is the Affiliate Tournament at Lanier High School on March 24th! Good luck to all of the teams and coaches!

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.

Below: Arrival Traffic Flow

Big picture

Below: Dismissal Traffic Flow

Big picture
Please note that the flow of traffic is different during dismissal time at our school. Even if you are not getting into the carpool lane, we should all still follow the same traffic flow so that cars do not face each other.


Also, as announced earlier in the year, please never park (even during after school care pick up time) in the circular area in front of the main school entrance at any time. This area is for moving cars only. Please see it on the map here:

Thank you all for all that you do to keep our children safe!

FSA takes 1st Place in K-3 Chess Team State Qualifier; Performs Very Well in 6-8 Section

Georgia Chess Association (GCA) held the first of two chess Team State Qualifier tournaments this past Saturday, March 3, 2018 at North Atlanta High School. The two sections at the Saturday Qualifier were K-3 and 6-8. The top scoring teams from each section will advance to the chess Team State Championship on March 25, 2018.

FSA won first place in the K-3 Section, tying with Daves Creek Elementary but ultimately winning the top spot on tie breaks! The kids who participated are: Mateo G., Saavan G., Ehan H., Neev K., Aarush K., Lucas M., Noah M., Omer O., Kovid P., Karthik T., and Archer W.
Big picture

[Not Pictured: (Neev K.)]


In the 6-8 section, FSA did not have a full team – the top five player scores for each team is used to calculate the total team score and FSA only had two students participate in that section. Pranav D. and Arnav S. did very well in spite of being short three players, so we will have to wait and see if FSA will qualify for the State Team Championship tournament in the 6-8 section. That decision will be made some time after March 10th.

We are so proud of all our chess players for their hard work on Saturday and practicing their chess year round. Thanks also to GM Ben Finegold (Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Atlanta) and Coach IM Carlos Perdomo (Chess Atlanta) for coaching FSA students and to the GCA (a volunteer organization) for providing this opportunity for our students to compete against other schools in the Atlanta area.

Good luck to FSA students at the second Qualifier!

An important message from the nurse about this cold and flu season

LET’S HELP PREVENT COLDS,THE FLU AND OTHER INFECTIOUS ILLNESSES FROM SPREADING THIS WINTER


As the school bell rings and we are headed back to class,the threat of colds, the flu and other infectious illnesses are a major concern,especially since there are confirming reports from the Department of Public Health (DPH) that flu activity is increasing statewide,along with the number of hospitalizations due to flu-related illness. Unfortunately, we had a few students out with the flu just before the snow break.


What can we do to help prevent the spread of the flu and other infectious illnesses? The first thing is simple...wash your hands frequently! Using hand sanitizer is also an option when soap and running water are not available. However,select a hand sanitizer that is alcohol based (and as with any soap,always supervise its use with small children). Research has shown that frequent hand washing and regular use of hand sanitizers in school settings can reduce absenteeism by as much as 20% (plus) in students and staff,and increased attendance by students and staff translates to improved academic performance!

Also, follow the school's standard procedure for routine cleaning and disinfecting. Flu viruses are relatively fragile, so standard cleaning and disinfecting practices are sufficient to remove or kill them.


Here are some additional things you can do to prevent the spread of the flu and other illnesses:


  • Teach children not to share personal items like drinks,food, eating utensils, or other personal items like towels,combs,brushes.
  • Properly dispose of used tissues when coughing and sneezing,and use your elbow,arm or sleeve when coughing or sneezing instead of the hand.
  • Wash athletic practice clothing each day,and shower after any contact sports.
  • Stay home if you are sick especially during the first days of illness when symptoms are the most severe and the infection is most contagious. Return to work or school only when symptoms are improving and when you’ve had no fever for at least 24 hrs.
  • Get vaccinated. Vaccination is the best protection against contracting the flu.
  • Please allow students to watch topics on hand washing and the flu.


There is great information on Brain Pop Jr and Brain Pop. Have a discussion. By working together,we can help reduce the transmission of the flu and other infectious illnesses in the school and community. If you need handouts or more information, please contact me.



-Nurse Vickie

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.

WT Café: New Hot Lunch Provider for 2nd Semester

We have moved to a new hot lunch provider for the second semester. We are excited about this switch and hope that all of our wonderful families are too!

Good nutrition is critical to children’s development, and we believe healthy eating habits established early pave the way to lifelong health. By preparing healthy food in creative ways, WT Café helps kids to discover the joy of fresh, natural foods and ultimately, to choose them over less-nutritious alternatives."

Let's go to costa rica

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRNQ06pj7_g
Coming to Costa Rica is a great experience for students to practice their language skills and learn more about the Hispanic culture. Students are not required to have a vast knowledge of Spanish, since once there, they will take a placement exam that will group them with other students their same level.


Students must be 6th grade and up. If you are interested in knowing more about this program, please speak to Mrs. Carmona.

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.
