Professional Speaker Series; Re-Cap of Last Week & What is to Come

Big picture

Thank you Mohammad Yahya Zaidi for coming to speak to our students!

FSA was visited by Dr Zaidi, an oncology surgeon currently doing research at Emory, his alma mater. While he indulged the students on his personal journey, he did a fantastic job painting a picture of the tribulations along the way. His take away message was to take your long terms goals one step at a time. While becoming a doctor is a tedious and lengthy process, a long process should not discourage you. He encouraged the students to question their decisions and continue exploring as he is still doing. It’s okay to ask for help- in fact he encouraged it! He credited his many mentors along the way for his success. I wonder how many future doctors he created with that moving presentation.


On Tuesday, March 5th we will hear from Speaker Kelsey Tainsh. To learn more about Kelsey, visit her website. http://kelseytainsh.com/


These presentations occur during one of the designated CERP periods during the week. Roughly, about 35 mins, students are required to attend as this is built in within their daily schedule. Attendance at these events which usually occur weekly, is just as important as if a student was attending class. Understanding the professional environment no longer starts in college. As the landscape changes the timeline is moving up and high school is where it all begins

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

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.
