1. STEAM DAY VOLUNTEERS: The FSA STEAM Day plans are moving full speed ahead for a great day of learning and fun on Thursday May 5th. We are looking for volunteers to work directly with the kids all day (some half day volunteer spots are also available) and have lots of great opportunities including working with art, fossils, gemstones, building stuff, and more. If you can’t wait to spend STEAM day at FSA, please sign up at http://vols.pt/4SEcEr
If you have specific questions about STEAM day, please contact Alison Gurevich at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. LIBRARY BOOKS: Monday, May 2nd we will have our last class visit to the media center to check out books. The media center will be used for testing the last few weeks of May, so it is very important that your child returns any books that they have checked out! If you are unsure... please email me and I will let you know what your child has checked out!
3. MAKER FAIRE PROJECTS: If you signed up to be a part of the Maker Faire back in February.... make sure your child's project is turned in! The Maker Faire will be held on May 4th.
Simply click the RIT scores your child falls in and have them work on the different concepts they need to improve on!
END OF YEAR PROJECTS
Instead of giving weekly homework for the remainder of the year, Mrs. Houston and I have organized some creative projects! We believe this will help students learn the content in a more engaging way. Of course Students have to read, comprehend, and write in all the projects so they are still practicing important skills! If you have any questions, please see FSA connect. If you still have questions, you may email me :) HAVE FUN!!!

REDBIRD (OLD EPGY)
The word gifted has never been applied to a kid like Donovan Curtis. It's usually more like Don't try this at home. So when the troublemaker pulls a major prank at his middle school, he thinks he's finally gone too far. But thanks to a mix-up by one of the administrators, instead of getting in trouble, Donovan is sent to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction (ASD), a special program for gifted and talented students.
It wasn't exactly what Donovan had intended, but there couldn't be a more perfect hideout for someone like him. That is, if he can manage to fool people whose IQs are above genius level. And that becomes harder and harder as the students and teachers of ASD grow to realize that Donovan may not be good at math or science (or just about anything). But after an ongoing experiment with a live human (sister), an unforgettably dramatic middle-school dance, and the most astonishing come-from-behind robot victory ever, Donovan shows that his gifts might be exactly what the ASD students never knew they needed.
