Southeast Georgia Health System Volunteen Program

The Southeast Georgia Health System Volunteen Program is for teenagers, 14 through 18 years old, who enjoy helping others and want to learn more about health care and volunteerism. Applicants must be in good academic standing, capable of maintaining confidentiality, reliable, responsible and trustworthy. 
Volunteens can be found volunteering in many departments throughout the Health System performing light clerical tasks and providing assistance to team members, patients, and guests. Volunteering is a great way for students to explore healthcare careers as well as earn the volunteer hours required for many college and scholarship applications.

Click HERE to download details and the application. Applications are also available in the College Counseling Center.

Middle School Model UN Competition

The Frederica Middle School Model United Nations Team traveled to Savannah this past Thursday to compete in the 20th Annual Coastal Georgia Center Middle School Model United Nations Competition. This is one of the longest-standing, continuous Middle School Model UN programs in the U.S.

This year's Middle School Model UN featured simulations of the United Nations General Assembly, the UN Security Council, the African Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and the Human Rights Council in an effort not only to provide a diverse representation of countries but to consider a broader range of world concerns.

The Frederica Academy team consisted of Merrill Been, Roy Boyd, JJ Briggs, Fina Dooley, Ryann Hankey, Carter JulesGreta Johnston, Kendall Lee, Holly Lewis, Gabe Moyer, and Riley Turner.

The entire team did an outstanding job. The following students received individual awards:  Honorable Mention General Assembly - JJ Briggs and Kendall Lee (Argentina); Honorable Mention Organization of Islamic Cooperation - Greta Johnston (Uganda); and Distinguished Delegation General Assembly - Holly Lewis and Carter Jules (Philippines).

JJ Briggs also won the position of General Assembly Caucus Chair for the event. This is an award given to one delegate from the General Assembly that is elected by the other delegates to lead voting blocks for the other countries in his or her global region.

A special thank you to FA Upper School students Gigi Gerhart, Sara Sekinger, and Sean Toomey for taking the time to run the after-school club, advise the students, and travel with them to the competition. The Middle School team could not have achieved its outstanding results without their guidance and support.  It was a pleasure to witness our students perfecting classroom skills such as professionalism, the ability to critically analyze and respond under pressure, and the confidence to speak articulately in a public forum. Thank you Middle School Model UN team for such an amazing experience!

Lower School Rockin' + Readin' Celebration

Click HERE to see photos taken during the Lower School Rockin' and Readin' celebration last week. This relaunched FA tradition was a huge hit with our Lower School students in Grades 1-5. A Fourth Grade student declared that it was the best day of her life when it was her turn to rock and read!

Fourth Grade Chinese Museum

Please stop by the Lower School Hall for a personal tour of the Chinese Museum by one of the Fourth Grade students. The Fourth Grade has been studying the ancient Chinese Dynasties and some of their hands-on projects are on display in the museum. Stop by to read some wonderful poetry inspired by the Tang Dynasty or view some beautiful porcelain vases created in Mrs. Lane's art class to represent the Ming Dynasty. Maybe read some of the Marco Polo journals to learn about his travels through ancient China. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from our very own students.

Second Grade Dr. Seuss Celebration

First Grade Dr. Seuss Oobleck Celebration

First Grade students were inspired to make their own OOBLECK after reading Dr. Seuss' book, Bartholomew and the Oobleck.

Kindergarten Special Guest Readers

Kindergarten was doubly blessed this week with special readers!

Ethan's Mamah, Patricia Dureska, read two Dr. Seuss books that emphasized ways to live a healthy life and an appreciation for the layers of the jungle. What a great way to celebrate Dr. Seuss and his birthday!

Rex's Mom, Kathryn Freidl, also joined the class to share a couple of family favorites as well as an extra special book titled, One. In this tale, we are reminded that each one of us has a voice and to stand up for ourselves when our feelings are hurt by others. We can do this with love and kindness.
As always, it is a HUGE blessing to spend each day in Kindergarten!

- Mrs. Manor and Mrs. Butler
