SUMMER WORK

Parents and students, I would like to remind you of the Summer Work for rising Kindergarten - 12th Grade Students. Please note that the Kindergarten through 5th Grade Summer Work is optional, however, if completed over the summer and brought to school on the first day (August 6th), those students will earn a dress down day! For our new parents and students, a dress down day is a day where students who have been given permission, may come to school out of uniform. This day will be determined and announced to the students so that they may know ahead of time when this is allowed.


All Middle and High School work however, is required and will be discussed in the beginning weeks of the school year and students will be given a grade for this work.


To view this work you can CLICK THIS LINK TO THE FSA WEBSITE or you can use the link provided below in the summer work section.

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.

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.
