Fulton Science Academy Parent-Principal Breakfasts
Fulton Science Academy Private School organizes small group parent breakfast meetings with the parents of students in each grade. The purpose of the meeting is to talk about your experiences so far at FSA and to create a venue for open communications and exchange of ideas to make sure our students get the best possible education at FSA. During these breakfast talks, our principal have a brief presentation on different school issues so that all of our parents are aware of many wonderful things at FSA. The breakfast is provided by FSA and parents do not need to bring anything else other than themselves. Breakfast menu includes panera bread egg and cheese sandwich, fruit salad, muffin, coffee, orange juice and tea in traditional glasses 🙂

Fulton Science Academy Interactive Study on Election Day
Mrs. Bragg’s Georgia Studies classes participated in an interactive study on election day! Students have been following election coverage since the beginning of the school year. On election day, Mrs. Bragg allowed students to participate in a mock election in which the ballot did not feature candidate names, but it featured important issues. Mrs. Bragg has been teaching students the importance of voting, and the importance of being INFORMED voters. Students voted for Candidate A and Candidate B on this ballot, and they voted by checking the box for each ISSUE they agreed with. At the end, they either had a majority for Candidate A or a majority for Candidate B. 5th period elected Barack Obama and 6th period elected Mitt Romney. In addition to the mock election, students then were given a swing state to research. They researched their state, several trends, past election results, and other factors impacting their swing state. They used their iPads, and an interactive map to complete this activity, and then each state’s representatives put a blue or red sticky note on our class map predicting the way their state would swing later in the evening when the results came in. As it turns out, they did a pretty good job, and they only missed a few states! Now our 8th graders can understand why swing states are so important, as well as the importance of being informed voters!
BIOBUS Visited Fulton Science Academy
Students also learned about the four blood groups and the antigen-antibody differences among them while performing a blood coagulation test (on simulated blood) to narrow down the suspects.
