Kindergarten RegistrationBy Allison E. on Mar 20th
Welcome to Frey Elementary School!
We are so excited to have you join our community! Frey is truly an amazing school and here is some information that will help you prepare for your first year at Frey.
1. The PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) is a group of parent volunteers that are committed to making Frey a truly special place. We also go by SPARK. We work together to plan events, like our Fall Festival, Spring Dance, and Family Movie Nights. We also fundraise to support cultural arts, visual arts, and loads of fun events that bring our community together. On top of all that, PTSA coordinates Reflections, a national art recognition program, and the Science Fair. We are always looking for parents to volunteer, so don’t hesitate to reach out for ways to get involved.
2. The Frey Foundation is a separate group of parent volunteers that promote all things STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) at Frey. They are responsible for our STEM lab and annual STEM Family Night. Frey holds an annual STEMtastic fundraiser in March and we encourage local businesses to donate at that time.
3. There are 4 websites that hold almost all the information you’ll need:
a. The Cobb County Website: http://www.cobbk12.org/
b. The Frey Elementary Website: http://www.cobbk12.org/Frey/
c. The Frey PTSA Website*: https://freyspark.org/
d. The Frey Foundation’s Website: https://freyfdtn.wordpress.com/
*The Frey PTSA website is where you can order spirit wear and view Frey’s calendar of events.
4. We use a House System at Frey. Your student will be sorted into a house at the beginning of the year and they will have the opportunity to purchase house-specific spirit wear for field trips and STEM lab visits. We hold quarterly House Celebrations to celebrate the house with the most points that quarter. Students are awarded house points for good behavior, outstanding citizenship, and other achievements throughout the year.
5. The PTSA collects Box Tops for Education, so please start saving those this summer and you’ll be able to turn them in during our first quarter Box Tops Collection Competition. The class that gives the most Box Tops will win a special party hosted by the PTSA.
6. Your teacher will need a Room Parent to help coordinate in-class events, communicate with parents, and solicit donations for the class fund. If you want to get involved, this is the best place to start! You’ll learn more about being a Room Parent at Sneak-a-Peek.
7. Important Dates:
a. July 31st at 8:00 AM is Sneak-a-Peek at Frey. Stop in to meet your teacher and tour the school!
b. Wednesday, August 1st is the First Day of School!
8. If you have any questions about Frey Elementary School or the PTSA you can reach out the PTSA at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer those questions or direct you to the person best equipped to do so.

Jump Rope for HeartBy Allison E. on Feb 2nd
Frey is joining 32,000 schools nation-wide to host a Jump Rope for Heart event. Through Jump Rope For Heart kids learn jump rope skills, how their heart works and raise money to help kids with special hearts. Have fun, learn how to stay healthy and make a difference in the lives of others! Money raised during these events goes directly to the American Heart Association and funds are used to help kids across the nation that are born with heart-related illnesses.
We need your help to make this happen! Mrs. Callahan has been tasked with coordinating this event and she needs YOUR help! You'll be utilizing the online tools provided by the American Heart Association to track student progress. As students sign up and collect pledges, they are awarded keychain characters. We'll need to send out these toys as students sign up.
