Lower School OLSAT Assessments

Students in Grades 1, 3, and 5 will take the Otis Lennon School Ability Test® ( OLSAT) standardized assessment on Wednesday and Thursday morning.


The OLSAT measures abstract thinking and reasoning capabilities that relate to a student's academic success.  Because it is used only as a reference tool, results will not be sent home.

To help your children do their best on this assessment, please be sure they get a good night's sleep and eat a good breakfast.

Students who are out of school those days will be tested the week of February 26.

For more information, please click  HERE to email Mrs. Ackerman.

Third Grade KGIB Recycling Lesson

Keep Golden Isles Beautiful representatives visited our Third Graders on Thursday to discuss the best ways to recycle and reuse items we commonly consider trash. 

Third Grade Xtramath Program

Luke Sarzier was the first Third Grade student to complete our new Xtramath program. Many other students are close to completing as well.

When students complete the program, we celebrate in many ways. Luke received a special certificate, as well as his golden crown, and party necklaces. He was also able to sit in the teacher's chair all day, and he had a night off of homework that evening.

We are so proud of Luke, and we know many other Third Grader students are right behind him in completing this program.

Second Grade Valentine's Day Party

Frederica Academy Second Graders celebrated Valentine's Day with a party!

Kindergarten Presidents' Day Fact-Filled Circle Maps

Kindergarten worked hard at creating two fact-filled circle maps about Presidents Washington and Lincoln as students prepared to celebrate Presidents' Day and to kick off the Kindergarten unit on American Symbols. Kindergartners also conducted an experiment using three different solutions to see which would clean pennies the best. The children made predictions as to which would make the most difference and could not decide by the end of the day on Friday. They voted to check again after the long weekend.  As always, every day is a great day to be in Kindergarten!
