Athletic PPE Forms (
APRIL 11)  
Screenings (APRIL 25)

All 6th through 12th grade students need to have a Preparticipation Physical Evaluation (PPE) for each new school year. This is required due to the rigorous activity expected by our physical education, athletic, and field trip programs.
As a school service, t he FA Athletic Department and Southeast Georgia Health System conduct on-campus PPE's for current students in grades 5 through 11 during the month of April each year.  Once complete, each student will be covered to participate in school and sports for the entire upcoming school year. We are very fortunate to have community volunteers provide this service for a $10 donation to the Booster Club.
The PPE's for the 2018-2019 school year will be held in the gym on April 25, 2018, from 5-7 p.m.

If you would like your student to have the exam done at school, please click HERE to print the packet of forms.  Parents should complete  pages 1-5 and return the entire seven-page packet to school no later than April 11, 2018. Please turn in complete paperwork to Coach Zimmermann or to Nurse Byers. The $10 fee will be added to the student's account as the paperwork is submitted. Turning in forms by April 11 allows us to do pre-screening (Height and weight, vision screenings, etc.) before the PPE event.

If you prefer to have the exam done by your family physician, please click HERE for a form packet. Parents should complete pages 1-5. Take the entire seven-page packet to your doctor and return to school when the exam is complete.

Georgia Odyssey of the Mind State Finals

On Saturday, April 7th, Frederica Academy's "Emoji, Speak for Yourself" Odyssey of the Mind team travelled to compete in the Georgia Odyssey of the Mind State Finals at Columbus State University. Team members include:  Travis Cavalier, Mary Wallace Champion, William Jobe, Lily Najawicz, and Mackenzie Todd. The students did an amazing job and improved on their scores from the regional competition as they enjoyed a great day performing, exercising their creativity, meeting teams from schools all over Georgia, and learning more about Odyssey of the Mind!

Special thanks to  Steve Jobe  and  Ashley Cavalier  for joining team advisor  Phoebe Shelton  in chaperoning the trip to Columbus. 

FA Marsh's Edge Silver Pen Writing Contest Winners

FA Haiti Jubilee School Spring Break Visit

A Frederica Academy delegation visited our sister school in Haiti over the Spring Break.  The group included Dottie Barrow, Laura Edenfield, Catherine Squire, and Curran Squire. Although the group interacted extensively with the Jubilee students, there was a significant emphasis on staff development for Haitian teachers at the school.

Mrs. Barrow worked closely with students and teachers on technology projects including teaching them how to make solar cell phone chargers. Frederica eighth grader Adam Elsharkawi designed the casing in advance of the trip.

Mrs. Edenfield read The Very Busy Spider to the preschool students and then taught them how to make spider hats.

Tenth Grade Frankenstein Literature Project

Tenth Graders were recently tasked with making a monster--not just any monster, however. In small groups, students constructed a life-size representation of Frankenstein's famed creature from the novel Frankenstein.  On the monster, students had to incorporate quotations that represented the monsters head (knowledge), his heart (emotions), and actions (hands and feet).  They were truly a sight!

Lower School Up with People Performance (Grades 1-3)

We had the great pleasure of having eight student volunteers from Up With People join the 1st through 3rd Grades at Frederica Academy for a 45-minute assembly filled with music, laughter, and dancing. Featuring students from Japan, Germany, Denmark, and the United States, these performers spoke in their native languages and danced with our students. Using imagination, our students flew to other countries with our guests and learned dances from Japan, India, Germany, and a few other countries. After the presentation to the Lower School, the Up With People performers went to a few Middle School and Upper School classes. What a great day! Frederica Academy is such an amazing school to be able to bring such educational fun to our students of all ages. Thank you for the privilege of having your student here.

Fourth Grade Archaeology Dig

Fourth Grade had a perfect day for its archaeological dig at the Epworth Tabby Cabins. The students loved learning how to use the excavation tools to unearth treasures!  The artifacts were sifted, bagged, cleaned, and then examined and dated. The children loved imagining the lives of the people who used the items they found.
