The Frey Foundation was established in 2009 to enrich the educational opportunities for the children of Frey Elementary. The foundation is separate from the school and district, it provides funding for projects and activities that are beyond the scope of traditionally supported school district projects. Frey Elementary Foundation recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each child. The Foundation’s mission is to provide students with exceptional lessons and experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math that are an enhancement to the regular school day. Students learn to follow their curiosity, to think creatively, and to work both independently and cooperatively with others.
For the first four years, the Foundation paid for a technology teacher as a specials rotation for all students at Frey. As our Frey families recognized the importance of STEM and increased donations, the Foundation has been able to pay for a STEM teacher, STEM Lab, technology for the school, iPads and laptops on mobile carts, and science in-house presentations.
Studies have shown that schools with thriving foundations that directly benefit the school, as well as enrichment programs,such as technology and science classes built into their daily curriculum, are performing well above schools that do not. Other schools in the area that are similar to Frey are providing approximately 66 hours per year of additional instruction in those areas to each student. This is instruction Cobb county does not provide. Thanks to your donations each year, Frey is providing it, too! Your child deserves the best education and resources available!
