HAPPY EARTH DAY! EARTH BALLOON WAS LOTS OF FUN!
This past week Earth Balloon was at our school. Students visited the Earth Balloon and it was AWESOME! We were able to sit together inside a giant balloon of the Earth and discuss the different parts of the Earth including: continents, oceans, landforms… Students had some great questions while we were discussing. It was a fun adventure! A BIG THANK YOU goes to one of our wonderful parents, Mrs. Debra Mutsch and Mrs. Kate Webster for arranging and coordinating Earth Balloon for our students.
ITBS/SAT CAMP WAS A HUGE SUCCESS
FSAPS students had an amazing ITBS/SAT camp this weekend. A total of 21 students attended this great cabin camp in Helen, Georgia. During the camp students worked on five different practice tests in detail. Students had lots of time to discuss questions and learn more during the camp. Students had lots of fun as well. Other than the games in the cabin, they also enjoyed the nature and city Helen tour. We thank FSAPS teachers for organizing this wonderful camp for our students.
EXPLORING FORCES AND MOTION IN 1ST GRADE SCIENCE
Mrs. Whitlock’s first graders just finished exploring motion. We learned that a force affects how something moves, using either a push or pull. We explored forces such as gravity and magnetism. We also got to experiment with different kinds of pushes and pulls. One of our favorite experiments was using rubber bands to launch toy race cars.
PRE-K & K HANDS-ON SCIENCE CLUB EXPLORES MAGNETS!
Last week, Pre-K and kindergarten students were able to explore magnets. We discussed how magnets attract metal objects, and we discussed how magnets can attract or repel objects. Students were able to explore magnets first hand, and had a great time doing it! They were able to see how a magnet can attract an object without actually touching it first.
MOTHERS’ NIGHT WAS LOTS OF FUN
FSAPS mothers enjoyed the final Mothers Night Out for the 2014-15 school year. It was a fun evening celebrating Indian culture. Mothers wore beautiful sarees, chose lovely bindis, ate delicious food, danced, got henna designs painted on their hands and danced even more! But most importantly, they made new friends! Mother Night Outs will continue at our new campus next year.
