This Week at FPD

Below is a selection of stories and activities highlighted on FPD’s social media accounts this week! This is not a comprehensive overview, but a snapshot of life at 5671 Calvin Drive.

Week of February 17

   
On Monday our 8th graders experienced a Modern Day Slavery Interactive Museum. The purpose of the museum is to teach students about the evils and reality of modern day slavery and human trafficking. This is part of a Georgia History and English project that challenges students to write a four stanza poem showing the change in racism, slavery, and injustice from the Civil War to modern day.
Mr. Joe dished out some delicious Cesar salad that prompted many student to eat their greens and try something new!
Our robotics team took at tour of the YKK plant to learn more about careers in STEM fields at YKK. Now they are headed to Atlanta for the State Robotics Competition!
 
Our third graders concluded their study of the states of matter by making every kids’ favorite – shaving cream slime!
 
Our kindergarten students had fun with our high school psychology students, engaging in fun challenges and activities that are unique to the preschoolers’ developmental stages and ages. The psychology students were able to learn more about cognitive and social development while the preschoolers enjoyed hanging out with the “big kids.”
   
It was “P” day in the kindergarten. They had fun with popcorn, peacocks, polish, pajamas, and more “P” themed activities.
We spotlighted Caroline Stroud ’14. She had some heartfelt reflections on FPD’s art program as she talked about her growing career in art. Read more
