Advanced Band Club

Students have been hard at work in Advanced Band so far this year! This ensemble continues to grow with some fabulous musicians in grades 5th - 8th. We have enjoyed making music in a variety of musical styles, including marches, holiday music, rock, jazz and the classics. We're looking forward to showing off our hard work very soon! Stay Tuned!!


ADVANCED ORCHESTRA CLUB

The Advanced Orchestra Club is the pinnacle of orchestral performance here at FSA. Students of all ages come together on Tuesdays and Fridays to rehearse in large an ensemble. Why two sessions? – because we love making music and can’t get enough of it!

Our young musicians have been working hard on music from Handel’s Harmonious Blacksmith, Holst’s Jupiter, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol, and Pachabel’s Canon in D. We have sight-read works of varying styles, played duets & trios, and given impromptu performances for passersby throughout the semester.

The Advanced Orchestra Club is full of dedicated, enthusiastic, and talented string students. You will be seeing more of us in the future!

Fulton Science Academy Players to Perform Black Boots Lost Loot

MUSTANG PLAYERS TO PERFORM BLACK BOOTS LOST LOOT

This one-act comedy chronicles the rivalry between two pirate crews, Black Boot and his men and Scurvy Sal’s crew of lady pirates. Be prepared for a whirlwind of treasure hunts, mistaken identities, and pirate romance. Shiver me timbers!

Through this work, students have the chance to memorize lines, learn about stage presence and voice control, and even lend a hand with set design and costuming. It is certainly hard work, but in the end, the cast members are left with memories that last a lifetime.

December 8 and 9 on the FSA Stage

Ticket information is coming soon.


HIGH SCHOOL MODEL UN AT GA STATE UNIVERSITY

This week, the FSAPS High School Model UN team attended their first ever competition. On November 13 and 14 the team attended the 2016 edition of GSUMUN on the campus at Georgia State University. Though the team was small, with only 4 students attending the event that included hundreds of students from 41 area high schools, they made a memorable showing.

Representing Kenya, FSAPS students were involved in 3 different councils: the General Assembly (GA), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The goal of this year’s conference was to work towards meeting the UN Initiative for Sustainable Development Goals.

Chloe Richardson, an FSAPS sophomore, was named outstanding delegate in her committee, the FAO! In this council, they tackled 3 main topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals: Achieving Zero Hunger through Sustainable Agricultural Production; Eradicating Extreme Poverty and Hunger: Addressing Global Food Security; and Encouraging Climate-Smart Agriculture for Sustainable Development.

We are very proud of the entire Model UN team for the hard work they have put in to prepare for this event and look forward to travelling to Georgia Southern University and other competitions next semester.

FULTON SCIENCE ACADEMY HOSTS INAUGURAL SCIENCE OLYMPIAD INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT

On Saturday, November 12, FSA hosted 24 teams from twelve schools in our Inaugural Science Olympiad Invitational.
“For a first tournament and this early in the season, it was very competitive. We had many of the top teams in the southeast, including Auburn Middle School from Alabama and Bearden Middle School and Friendship Christian Academy from Tennessee, not to mention our perennial rival Dodgen Middle School from Marietta,” said tournament director and FSA head coach, Pam Walsh.
“This was not a team competition,” explained Walsh. “It was an opportunity for students and coaches to measure their progress against each other. Normally Science Olympiad has very strict rules about team make-up, but we did not apply those rules in this tournament in order to give teams more flexibility.”
FSA students did remarkably well, placing in fourteen of the twenty events. Ribbons were awarded to the following FSA students:
Bottle Rockets – coached by Mr. Parlak-4th place – Karitheya and Ved, 5th place –Jay and Nicholas
Crime Busters – coached by Mr. Kuppuswamy-5th place – Navina and Jay
