EGGcellent Egg Drop

The egg drop held on Monday was EGGcellent!  The egg drop kicked off our STEM campaign.  We had many creative designs and ideas.  Students at Frey are very fortunate to be able to go to the STEM lab on a frequent basis and learn from our STEM teacher.  Please take time to donate to Frey’s STEM-tastic campaign.

 

Join us today in our STEM-tastic Campaign by helping to raise funds for continued resources in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics instruction at Frey.  YOU are the Frey Foundation, and your students need your support!

What do you value?

Third graders have been answering the following question in guidance: What do you value?  As a basis for our lesson we use the website Values.com to gain a deeper understanding of different values.  For our activity students create thier own values billboard that represents their personal value.

Listed below is a sample that one of our third grade teachers created:

 

  *** If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything***

January 16, 2018 After School Activities

Due to inclement weather, CCSD is cancelling ALL after school and evening activities except for ASP.  However, although ASP will remain open, parents are strongly encouraged to pick up their children as soon as possible.  In addition, we will be monitoring the weather situation and hope to make a decision regarding tomorrow by 10 pm this evening.  Please stay tuned.

January Guidance

As we kick off 2018, Frey counselors want to make sure that students have a positive outlook.  All grade levels will learn what it means to have a growth mindset:

Growth Mindset Definiton:( Robert Stenberg) People with a growth mindset see their qualities as things that can be developed through their dedication and effort. Sure they’re happy if they’re brainy or talented, but that’s just the starting point. They understand that no one has ever accomplished great things—not Mozart, Darwin, or Michael Jordan—without years of passionate practice and learning.

 

 

Social Media and Children

Did you know that you have to be 13 years old to be on instagram?

Do you know what snapchat is?

Do you know how to check youe child’s online history?

Please join the Frey Counselor’s on January 23, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. in the Frey Cafeteria.  We will have  dynamic  presentation by Lisa Ellerbee, AT&T,Senior Program/Development Mgr, Dynamic Traffic Management AT&T Mobility Business Solutions, who will enlighten you on social media and our children.
