Frey Foundation STEM-tastic Campaign
All Things STEM at Frey!

Who is the Foundation!
You are the Foundation! The money you raise allows every K-5 student at Frey to visit the STEM Lab 10 times a year!  That’s the equivalent of a two week STEM Summer Camp! But that’s not all! You also help fund technology resources that set Frey apart!
** Remember that 100% of the funds raised will remain at Frey!**

Goal52STEMtastic Campaign March 2016 was a great success!!
Thank you Frey families for all of your generous donations to the Frey Foundation’s STEMtastic Campaign!  Our total as of May 9th is $48,972.60, of which about $8,000 is corporate matching grants/donations.  We appreciate all the community has done for our students to make this a successful school year.

Baby chicks hatched at Frey!  Second grade teachers, Mrs. Rickeard and Mrs. Scarpinato, did an amazing job hatching 18 chicken eggs as a part of their study on lifecycles.  The Foundation purchased an incubator so the teachers and students could observe and document the egg-citing process in the classroom.

Thank you from our STEM Lab!
From our STEM Lab teacher, Mrs. Allison Johnson: Thank you for all your wonderful donations to the STEM Lab!  I have already put the items to use during your child’s STEM Lab experiences.  Feel free to send in disinfecting wipes (any brand), small baby wipe packages ($1 at Walmart,Kroger), hand sanitizer and basic LEGO building block sets/pieces that need a “retirement home”.  Thank you again!

Where does the Foundation spend the money?
Your generous donations during our March STEMtastic campaign allow the foundation to purchase needed science, technology, engineering and math supplies for your school.  This is above and beyond what Cobb County can provide.  The foundation board is administration, teachers and parents that review and prioritize needs at the school.  Visit the Successes page for purchases that are making a difference for your child.
