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:

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.

Transportation Information

School Hours & Important Transportation Info
7:15 AM – 2:15 PM

In order to maintain safe and effective operations for all Frey students, we must provide clear and consistent expectations for all parents as well. Thank you in advance for reading, learning, and adhering to the following guidelines:
1. Please understand and respect that there is no staff supervision before 7:15, and the front doors remain locked until this time each morning. Therefore, no students should be dropped off before 7:15, and all parents are expected either to remain in the carline or to park and personally walk your student to the front door.
2. Students are considered tardy at the 7:50 bell. This is when our instructional day begins and our morning announcements are broadcast in our classrooms. Therefore, students are considered tardy if they are not in their class when the bell rings.
3. For an early check-out or a transportation change other than your normal daily arrangements, parents are required to send in a note that morning with each of their students. Any temporary bus change must be on the district bus pass or the driver cannot accept it. Click link below to print. http://www.cobbk12.org/centraloffice/Transportation/Bus%20Pass.pdf
4. Early dismissals are accepted up until 1:45 PM. If you arrive to check out your student AFTER 1:45 PM, please accept our apologies as we will not call into the classrooms. Students will be dismissed at the normal time using the transportation arrangements for that day.
5. Any transportation changes must be sent in the morning in written form to your student’s teacher (please include notes for each student). All last minute transportation changes that come up must also be completed by 1:45 PM to ensure that we have adequate time to communicate this with your student and the teacher. For safety reasons, no transportation changes will be communicated after 1:45.
6. All car riders must be picked up by 2:40 PM, or they will be placed in our After School Program (ASP). See our ASP page for more information.

Thank You,
Jason Cathey
