Physical Education Class Had a Blast!

PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS HAD A BLAST!

North Atlanta Fencing Center was at our school today working with all the Middle school students. “The children had a blast!” Said Mrs. Teeling.  “I was amazed at how they really took to John and the lesson, maybe the Foil had something to do with it,” She laughed. 
There are three types of weapons in Olympic style Fencing. Foil is the one the students used today. It has a limited target area and is traditionally the first weapon taught.
John has been fencing for about 17 years and enjoys sharing his love of fencing with his students. The grand opening of their new facility is happening this Saturday from 1-5 at 10029 highway 92, suite 124 in Woodstock, 30188. Their site is northatlantafc.com, please go to it for more information about his fencing center.”I think there was enough interest today to pursue offering it as a club here at school,” Mrs.Teeling said. And the kids said….”This was so fun, is he coming back tomorrow?”

Eight graders enjoyed their field trip to the Mexican restaurant EL PORTON where they connect the classroom with academic and social learning experiences. At FSA, we enjoy engaging students in meaningful tasks within and outside the classroom. The students ordered their food in Spanish, interacted with the waiters in Spanish, enjoyed the cultural atmosphere and finally asked for their bill in Spanish and paid. FSA Students received compliments from the restaurant staff for their Spanish language skills.  It was agreat day for everyone.
