Fulton Science Academy

ACCREDITED AND STEM CERTIFIED COLLEGE PREP GIFTED SCHOOL

Week of October 14, 2019

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,


I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!


FSA’s growth depends on its ability to raise capital. We are proud of the fact that we have built and maintained such a stellar educational institutional while keeping tuition lower than almost every other high performing private school in our area. In order to continue to thrive, keep tuition costs down, and provide educational excellence to our students, we have to be able to raise funds from sources outside of our parent base.


But we need your help to do so.


Like any other organization, investors, businesses, and even banks are more likely to invest in those who are willing to invest in themselves. You can show your commitment to invest in the school by attending the STEAM Innovation Awards. Those attending the event are not only organizations that have already made financial commitments to our school, but also those who we hope will make financial contributions in the future. By having a strong showing of parents at the event, you are assuring our partners that they are making an investment in an organization that believes in itself.


We are a strong and supportive FSA family. Let’s show the community who we are.

What are the STEAM Innovation Awards?

The Fulton Science Academy STEAM Innovation Awards is our school’s inaugural community partnership fund-raising event to be held on Friday, October 25 at the Metropolitan Club in Alpharetta.


Why should I attend this event?

We would like our families to help us celebrate the enriching partnerships we are fostering within the community.

We are proud of the fact that our students' education, while fostered by our wonderful teachers and staff, is also enriched by the unique learning experiences offered by some of the most respected members of the business community. We would love for you to join us in appreciating them for shaping our students to become the next great future leaders in STEAM.


How does my attendance at this event help our school?

All proceeds from this event will go toward FSA’s expansion.

Due to our stellar academic achievements and remarkable reputation in the community, Fulton Science Academy has grown six-fold over the past six years. An expansion of the FSA campus is necessary in order to maintain our growth and the caliber of quality education FSA has become known for. We would love for you to support FSA in maintaining the highest quality educational experience that we offer our precious students.


What is going to happen during the event?

The evening will begin with an hors d’oeuvre and cocktail hour while guests enjoy a silent auction featuring a variety of exciting items such as autographed sports memorabilia, gorgeous jewelry, and multiple international trips including a South African Safari. Guests will then move to the main dining room and enjoy a three course meal during student presentations and the community partners awards ceremony. We will wrap up the evening with desserts and a coffee bar while you mingle and collect your auction winnings.


What is the dress code?

Business attire is preferred.


We do hope you will join us for what we would like to see become an annual FSA event.

Everyone, please remember that the speed limit is 15mph. We have had many instances that are a cause for concern and we would like everyone to be safe. We understand that sometimes you can be in a hurry, but the main goal is to keep you and your students safe while on campus. Speed limit signs are posted along the driveway when you come onto the campus. please adhere to this not only for your safety, but the safety your student(s) and other families and their students.

Also, the construction of our campus expansion is now in full swing.


Students,

please remember to use the walkways that are designated. Students should not try to go through the construction area as a shortcut. Please remember the correct routes and do not use the side doors. These have been taped off for a reason; your safety. If you are a student that is driving, please remember to drive the speed limit. Speed limit signs are posted along the driveway into the school.



Parents,

As mentioned above, please remember to drive the appropriate speed limit as well. Many construction trucks will be entering and leaving the school on a daily basis at different times throughout the day.


Let's keep everyone safe!

With Warmest Regards,


Kenan Sener,

Science Olympiad Team competes in Nation’s first Invitational

Both the Middle School and High School Science Olympiad teams competed in the first tournament of the 2020 season on Saturday. The Tournament was hosted by South Forsyth High School and included 20 middle school teams and 30 high school teams. All together, over 600 students competed, including 72 from FSA.

Overall, head coaches Pam Walsh and Gloria Stathos were pleased with the performance of their teams. “Science Olympiad rules were not released until September 1, so students really did not have much time to prepare for this tournament,” said Mrs. Walsh. “Many of our events only met four times before this tournament. We even placed in several building events, which is very difficult to do this early in the season.”

“This first tournament is really all about gaining competition experience,” said Mrs. Stathos. “It’s hard to describe what it’s like for students to compete their first time. They have to arrive on time, at the correct classroom, with the right equipment, to take a test of an unknown format working with a partner they may not know very well. Many of these events require students to complete lab activities and other hands-on events. It can be a real pressure-cooker.”

The high school team will compete at the UGA Invitational on October 26. The middle school team’s next tournament is the Dodgen Invitational on November 16.

Big picture


When: 5:30 pm October 18th, Friday

Where: FSA Cafeteria


What is a Civic Dinner?

A platform that brings people together to have conversations that matter over food, for anyone, anywhere. What better place to talk about Belonging than our diverse FSA community? To top it off, we have food.


Why Belonging?

Humans crave a sense of belonging and connection--to one another and to the places we call home. Unfortunately, many people--including immigrants and longtime residents - feel like they don't belong. Whether through policies or more subtle encounters, messages of exclusion work their way into our minds and social fabric. It is time to come together to explore our own sense of belonging, and how we can create more welcoming communities.


RSVP NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 15th by visiting:

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.”


How can I schedule a home visit?

Very simple.

To schedule an elementary school home visit: 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.


To schedule a middle or high school school home visit: Simply email sduman@fultonscienceacademy.org with some suggested dates/times, as well as your students' name(s) and homeroom assignments. Mr. Duman will be in touch to confirm final details.


Depending on our teacher’s availability, at least two teachers will be together to visit our students and parents at their homes. The best times to schedule a home visit are weekdays after 5:00 pm, and anytime during the weekends, except Sunday mornings. For any questions you have about this program, send an e-mail to homevisit@fultonscienceacademy.org
