The FSAPS Social Studies Department would like to congratulate several students for their strong showing at the West Metro Regional Social Studies Fair on Saturday, March 14th. Students from neighboring counties converged on Lake Ridge Elementary School in Clayton County to compete in the fair. FSAPS sent 3 projects representing various social science disciplines and were well-rewarded for their hard work.
Each of our three students received a ribbon for their projects at the fair:
6th grader Arul Selvakumar received a second place ribbon for his project, “What is the Threat of Trash Vortex from Oceanic Gyres to Humanity?”
Isabella Sims, a fellow 6th grader, received third place for her project, “America’s Horse: Identifying Reasons for the Recent Increase in ‘Unwanted’ Horses in the U.S.”
Sarah Ahmed, an 8th grader, also placed third with her project, “How Do Immigrants Affect the U.S. Economy?”
Thank you to all of the students and their teachers for making this year’s FSAPS Social Studies Fair a success. A lot of hard work went into these projects, and although only a few could progress to this level, we felt there were many deserving of the honor. We are very proud of all of our students that participated in the fair this year and are excited by this success at the regional level.
