6th graders, Katherine Li and Mira Mutnick are invited to Duke TIP’s Georgia State Recognition Ceremony along with 7th grade students. Out of 9,599 4th-6th grade students tested in nation, 343 of them achieved a score at or above 99 percentile of their 8th grade counterparts. These students are invited to state ceremonies to celebrate their achievements. Congratulations to Katherine and Mira for this national level achievement. Way to go!

Earlier this semester 11 7th graders were recognized by Duke TIP for their achievements. Please see their pictures here as well.


This past week a group of FSA students and parents visited the Georgia Game Developers Association’s Spring College Fair and Portfolio Show at  the Georgia International Convention Center, near the Atlanta airport.  Even though this event was mainly for college and high school students, our middle school students were also invited.  We thank Georgia Game Developer Association for covering our transportation cost for this trip. It was a great event for those students interested in game development. Next, we are organizing a trip to Emory University’s robotic laboratory. More information on this new trip will be shared soon.


Last Wednesday, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students traveled to the The Atlanta Botanical Garden to enjoy a  guided tour by several of the Garden’s docents that focused specifically on plant diversity.  While most plants have similar parts, each species’ vary in function and appearance according to their environment. During this tour, students discussed plant adaptations as they explored the Outdoor Gardens and the Fuqua Conservatory – particularly the rainforest, desert and southeastern bog gardens. 

Afterwards, we walked to Piedmont Park to enjoy a picnic lunch and get some exercise at one of the playgrounds.  After releasing some energy, students returned to the Botanical Garden to explore the Children’s Garden.  See some of our pictures below and check out the Field Trip board in the main hallway to see an even more complete Atlanta Botanical Garden field trip in pictures!

FSA Math Olympiad Team Won 2nd Place at Cheetah Cup Math Competition

On Saturday, April 20, 6th grade students from FSA Math Olympiad Team participated in the Cheetah Cup Math Competition at Creek View Elementary School. Once, again our students did a wonderful job and won 2nd place among 30 teams. Our 6th graders were only three points behind the first place team.

In the Individual category, 6th grader , Katherine Li won second place. Katherine answered all  ten questions correctly in this round and tied with 5 other students. During tie break round, Katherine again got the correct answer but she raised her hand miliseconds after the first place winner. Therefore she won 2nd place at this tournament individually. 
We are very proud of all of our Math Olympiad students. They have done a wonderful job this year. Congratulations to these students, their parents and our Math Olympiad Coaches, Mr. Tuzen and Mr. Seker. Way to go!

WT Cafe – FSA School Lunch Program

We are pleased to inform our students and parents that we have finalized the selection of lunch program for 2013-2014 school year.

We will be working with a wonderful school lunch program called WT Café.

This company is also known as Wholesome Tummies. They use the name WT Café when the schools they serve includes middle school grades and up.

Please click here for WT Café Website and click here for WT Café Brochure.

More information about our new school lunch program will be shared on FSA Weekly Newsletter and on our school website soon. 

Our food is full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
Children need well-balanced meals with a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in order to function at peak performance during the school day. Our foods consistently include these nourishing ingredients, even if we have to “sneak” them in!

We only use organic and all-natural ingredients
We believe in minimizing chemicals and pesticides in our children’s foods wherever possible. We strive to use organic products when our foods include any of the 12 fruits and vegetables found to have the highest levels of pesticide residue (the “Dirty Dozen”).

Our food contains no trans-fats, no high fructose corn syrup, no nitrates, no artificial colors, and no artificial flavors
Our kids don’t need to eat foods with ingredients they can’t pronounce. These items belong in the laboratories where they are made, and not in our children’s bodies. We will not include artificial ingredients of any kind in our foods.

Our food is nutritionist-approved for children’s dietary needs
We work closely with our corporate nutritionist to prepare foods with the right balance of fat, proteins, and carbohydrates for children’s growing bodies.  Our portion sizes and proprietary recipes are designed to reflect the approved guidelines for a child’s daily caloric needs.
Strict Standards

At Wholesome Tummies, we adhere to strictest standards for food.  We promise to:

  • Use natural and organic foods
  • Make our foods from scratch every day
  • Never use artificial flavors or colors
  • Never use MSG or other additives
  • Never use high fructose corn syrup
  • Never use added trans fats
  • Use reduced levels of sodium
  • Use reduced levels of sugar

Some additional information about our foods: 

  • Our meats are free from added nitrates, and we strive to offer hormone and antibiotic free meats whenever possible.
  • We use olive oil and canola oils, which have a healthier blend of fatty acids than other cooking oils.
  • Minimal amounts of fat are used in all food preparations. We have nothing to hide. 
In fact, all our nutritional info is posted on our ordering pages next to each menu item for our customers’ easy reference.  Anyone is welcome to visit one of our local food service facilities to see firsthand how committed we are to providing a truly natural choice for our children.  What they eat today creates lifelong eating habits, and we work hard to help parents like you get them off on the right culinary path!

Hosting 30 Firefighters Friday Evening

Dear Parents,

I would like to inform you that we will be hosting 30 firefighters tomorrow, Friday evening at 5:00pm for dinner. 

For those of you that are new to FSA, please don’t be worried when you see many emergency officers during some Friday nights at our school. We regularly host SWAT, fire marshalls, medics and police at our school for their trainings. It is good for them because they like the setting of our school for their trainings. It is also good for us because we can show these heroes of our community how much they are appeciated by all of us here at FSA.

Since we host these emergency response team professionals several times each school year, we ask for your help in sponsoring the dinner provided during their training evening.  The total dinner cost is typically $240.  If you would like to help sponsor any of this cost for the dinner planned tomorrow evening, please send your student in to school tomorrow with your contribution.  Your contribution may be given to the front office and any amount would be appreciated.  If we receive over $240, we will designate the additional portion to the next planned dinner and we will update you on this in the next newsletter. Thank you for all you do!
