EXCELLENCE, INNOVATION, CHARACTER

Week of April 16, 2018


PRINCIPAL'S CORNER


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,


Welcome back to another week! I would like to welcome back our students, teachers, and parent chaperones from the Boston Trip over the weekend! I can't wait to hear all about the trip from the students and everyone else! They arrived back in GA very early this morning from the trip and I know everyone is very tired, but I am sure that they had a very fun time while there! Stay tuned to all of our other social media for updates from the trip! Until then, please enjoy the picture gallery below!

ABOVE: Some of our wonderful students who attended the Boston Trip

I want to give a big thank you to our wonderful parent volunteers and MSO memebers who provided our teachers and staff with a delicious lunch today! Everyone always goes above and beyond and it is always a wonderful lunch that is provided. Thank you to everyone on all of their hard work to make these teacher luncheon days so great and run so effortlessly!


Our International Cultural Cafe is coming up this Sunday April, 22 so please be sure to look at the Cultural Cafe section below! We are hoping for a big turnout this year and look forward to seeing everyone that is able to come out for this fun family friendly event! There will be performances, tons of different booths representing different countries, lots of delicious food, and trivia!


We have another great Mother's Night Out Event planned at the beginning of May! On May 4th from 6:00pm - 9:00pm, there will be a professional Zumba Instructor coming to the school to teach a Zumba class! be sure to read more on this night in it's section below, and be sure to sign up for the potluck for the event using the link provided!


We have our Spring MAP Testing beginning next Monday, April 23! A more Detailed schedule is listed in the calendar below so parents, please be sure to look over this schedule. Testing for Elementary students will begin promptly at 7:45am, and for Middle and High School, 8:15am.


Testing Tips for Elementary Students:

1. Please have your child go to bed early and eat a substantial breakfast!

2. Get to school on time! Feeling rushed does not prepare students for success. We will begin at 7:45am.

3. Encourage your child to think positively and take their time! Too much pressure is stressful for young children!

4. Please remind students to NEVER discuss scores with other students. This can negatively effect other students.

5. If you chose to do some reviewing each night, please try make it fun! We do not want our young ones to feel overwhelmed before/ during testing!

6. Encourage your child to take their time, and to not rush!


Testing Tips for Middle and High School Students:

1.Much like the Elementary students, make sure your student is getting enough sleep, and that they have a substantial breakfast in the morning.

2. Get to school on time! Feeling rushed does not prepare students for success. We will begin at 8:15am.

3. Make sure your student knows to take their time and try their best!

4. Much like the Elementary students, please remind your student to NEVER discuss scores with other students.


We also have our Middle and High School Finals coming up in just over a month! You can see this schedule just below the calendar. Just like with the MAP Testing, please make sure that your student is at school on time and has had a substantial breakfast. It is always important that our students take their education seriously.


Next, I want to tell you all a little bit about 3 field trips that we had last week. We had just come back from Spring Break and got right back into the swing of things! Our Pre-K class went on a trip to The Center of Puppetry Arts to see The Cat in the Hat! Our 3rd Graders went on a Field Trip to the State Capitol and learned in depth about Georgia's history, how laws are made, and our system of government! Lastly, our 5th Graders went on a trip to Treetop Quest in Dunwoody and got to work together on fun obstacle courses and zip through the trees on ziplines! It was a great team building activity! Be sure to look at all of the pictures from these spectacular field trips!


Lastly, I am excited to share that we have received a Certificate of Achievement from the City of Alpharetta! Fulton Science Academy received the "2017 Business of Excellence" Certificate of Achievement on March 29th as well as an Award for Four Consecutive Years of Excellence!

7th Grader Seth D. needs your help!

"My parents came from a small town in Philippines called Bicol. We went there when I was little and I can still remember the fresh air, the simpleness of life and the purest heart of the kids I played with. But I came back home with a heavy heart thinking of the unfortunate kids my age. As I grew up, I had always thought of a way to give back to the community who gave my parents their simple but happy childhood.

Before my parents immigrated to the United States, they had helped many people in the Philippines thrive. They had given money, food, clothes, and shelter to those who had needed them. Their actions have impacted mine, and to continue their acts of kindness to those who couldn’t support themselves, it would have been only the greatest honor to follow their legacy of helping others.

A few months ago, my parent’s hometown was struck with a volcanic eruption where families were displaced in evacuation centers. The evacuation centers were public schools which disrupted the children’s education for months. Our family purchased second-hand clothes, sent 12 boxes and distributed to the displaced families. My aunt’s foundation also helped in feeding and provided some groceries. As of this time, most of the families have returned home but the help does not stop there….

School will start in June and some kids will not even have papers to write on or shoes to wear or even food to eat. So friends, classmates and families, I humbly ask if you can spare some change to help these kids to provide school supplies and perhaps provide nutritious food. I have set-up a “Go Fund Me”, a “Patreon” and of course a jar in school lobby where you can drop some extra change. We hope that you can help these kids receive the education that they deserve. Thank you. My target for school year 2018-19 is $500 to purchase school supplies for about 100 first graders of Barayong Elementary School.

Here are some photos during our family’s past relief distribution."

Help D.I. Team "savages are cabbages" make it to Tennessee for the Global Finals in may

Big picture

"A determined group of five fifth-grade boys from Fulton Science Academy in Alpharetta, Georgia set out two months ago on a mission to build a robot and find a way to maneuver it through a 16’ x 16’ foot maze. They are competing in the technical category called Maze Craze of Destination Imagination. They call themselves the Savages are Cabbages!


No... I have no idea what that means :-)

Anyhow, the team recently won 1st place in the State affiliate competition on March 24th and have earned an opportunity to compete on a global stage with 1400 other teams from 45 states and 14 countries from around the world. We will be competing at the Global Finals this May from the 21st through the 27th at the University of Tennessee.

The team needs to raise $7500 to cover the registration and trip fees. Please consider helping them get to and win this worldwide competition."

EV3 Robotics Summer Camp @ FSAPS!

TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS CAMP SUCH AS; COURSE INFORMATION, DAILY SCHEDULE, AND A CHANCE TO SIGN UP, PLEASE CLICK THE PICTURE ABOVE!

Build and Program Robots with LEGO EV3

Learn to design, build and program awe-inspiring robots using LEGO’s most advanced and newest robotics technology – the powerful MINDSTORMS® EV3. You’ll work as a team to complete projects and games created specifically for EV3. The EV3 is today’s go-to robotics system for hobbyists and features improved digital sensors, a seven-state color-light sensor, new gyro sensors, touch sensors and an improved ultrasonic sensor. Students will leave with an understanding of the Engineering Design Process and the skills needed to build and program competitive robots.


VEX EDR

VEX kits inspire students to become the problem solving heroes of tomorrow. The VEX EDR system harnesses the excitement of building robots to immerse learners in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) concepts.
The VEX EDR platform was designed from the ground up to encourage creativity in problem solving. The system itself should never be the biggest constraint in the design process - with VEX, there is almost always more than one way to accomplish the same goal. All of our products are built around each other to ensure seamless integration without frustration.

  • VEX's integrated system of components means that students can focus on questions like "what happens if we change this arm?" instead of "why doesn't this piece fit?"
  • Beginners can get an immediate sense of accomplishment by building basic driveable robots in just a few hours
  • By utilizing feedback from the students and teachers that use VEX every day, we embrace the value of "continuous improvement" and have developed a system truly driven by its users
ROBOTC is a cross-robotics-platform programming language for popular educational VEX robotics systems.
ROBOTC is the premiere robotics programming language for educational robotics and competitions. ROBOTC is a C-Based Programming Language with an Easy-to-Use Development Environment.

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.

Take Control Of Spring Allergies: A message from the school Nurse

Spring Allergies are often caused by tree pollen.


Common Symptoms are:

  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Wheezing
  • Itchy Ears & Throat
  • Sneezing
  • Runny Nose



Tips for Avoiding Pollen:

  • Keep windows closed.
  • Wash your hands, face, and body when coming inside from the outdoors.
  • Remove clothes after being outdoors. Consider putting a hamper for soiled clothes outside of the bedroom.
  • Do not hang clothes or linens outside to dry.
  • Avoid outdoor activities between 5am and 10am when pollens are more prevalent.
  • Skin testing by a board certified pediatric allergist is the best was to diagnose your spring allergy triggers.

Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them

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.
