Why do students and teachers love FSAPS? We love it because you feel like you’re a part of something wonderful. Learning isn’t just something that takes place from 8 am until 4:20 pm. Learning happens on our campus every night, every weekend, and it’s an amazing feeling to be a part of it. You get to be here with the kids when they make new discoveries and build life-long friendships. On any given Friday night there are parents, teachers, and students of all ages inhabiting every part of the building.

This past Friday night the Drama Club was practicing for their upcoming performance, The Giver while FSAPS Moms and Female Teachers immersed themselves in Asian Culture by attending East Asian Mother’s Night in the Cafeteria. Students were playing soccer games with friends in the gym and almost all of the Academic Teams were out in full force- Destination Imagination, Science Olympiad, and the Robotics Team. Check out below for a few photos from all the fun this past Friday Night (February 5th)- and plan to stop by one Friday evening to join in the fun!

This semester Mrs. Houston’s Creative Writing Club is really trying to utilize and expand upon the skills second graders are learning in their homeroom writing class. Students are learning ways to improve writing compare/contrast compositions and friendly letters by reviewing organizational skills for pre-writing and how to evaluate a rough draft. Over the next few months, students will also be able to request certain writing topics for club time, as well as choose their own styles of writing during free-write.

Fulton Science Academy Kindergarten Hands on Science

Hands on science by Mrs.Irshadullah is so much fun. Every week students do hands on activities and learn about science. Science is all around us everyday and the experiments promote learning and scientific awareness. The students have learned what happens when vinegar mixes with baking soda, how liquids have different densities, what happens when two primary colors mix. These are just to name a few. We can’t wait for more experiments to do in upcoming weeks.

Students involved in Elementary Destination Imagination are working hard completing their Central Challenges for the GA Regional Showcase that will be held here at FSAPS.

Two of our teams are working on the structural challenge, Musical Mashup. This involves designing and building a structure that supports weight and is a musical instrument. They must play a musical solo and tell a story with at least one musical character. All ideas and work must be done by team members only.

Four of our teams are working on the technical challenge, Pace of Change. These teams must design and build a vehicle able to carry at least one team member across the presentation area, multiple times. They must also change the vehicle propulsion system and the vehicle movement method during the presentation, as well as present a story about change. All ideas and work must be done by team members only.

Thank you to all of the parents, of our team members, who have stepped forward to help the teams prepare. Without our wonderful parents, the teams would never be able to accomplish their challenges!

On Wednesday and Thursday this past week my dad, Burton Dixon, visited our 7th period earth science class. My dad is a geologist and shared with us on Wednesday several of his favorite fossils from his personal collection. On Thursday my dad returned to our 7th period class with more rocks and even had a meteorite to show the class. He also suggested on Wednesday to my fellow classmates to bring in some of the rocks from their rock collection and several classmates did. We had a very good time talking and learning about rocks and fossils from a real geologist. What a good time by all!
