Fulton Academy of Excellence
An APS Pilot School
Welcome to Fulton Academy of Excellence!
Fulton Academy of Excellence learners are engaged and empowered to reach academic proficiency and are prepared emotionally and socially for life-long success.
The mission of Fulton Academy of Excellence is to ensure relevant, authentic, inclusive, and rigorous education in a safe, supportive environment that motivates learners and provides the time and opportunity to:
- Communicate effectively
- Be problem solvers and critical thinkers
- Reflect and act on their own learning
- Build relationships with students and adults, and
- Engage in a variety of enriching experiences.
Aurora Public Schools is gearing up for summer break. While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.
We have an exciting reading service available through Sora, the student reading app, which provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. Learn more about Sora and its perks for you and our students here: https://meet.soraapp.com/. What better way to engage a student’s mind than through reading?
This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in Sora for quick and easy unlimited access from June 6 – August 15, 2019. You can explore the title offerings and learn more about the program here: https://resources.overdrive.com/summer-read/.
This year we are challenging all of our students to miss no more than FIVE days of school. Students who meet this goal will earn fun prizes throughout the year, including a surprise field trip in May.
Daily attendance is essential to learning, and students need to be at school every day unless they have a fever or are vomiting.
School Uniform Policy
Students at Fulton are expected to wear collared Polo shirts as part of our uniform policy along with any pants, skirts, shorts, or skorts that reach beyond the fingertips when hands are held at the side.
Flyer School App
Parents! Download our new app FLYER for information about events! Once downloaded, search for “Fulton Jaguars”. We are excited about this new method of sharing news! In September parents and teachers will be able to communicate directly through the app. Homework assignments, lunch menus, upcoming dates. All will be available via the app.
Be sure to choose the language in which you would like to receive our notifications!
