“Make a difference, be a
“Make a difference, be a hero!”
Our 2016-2017 school theme, “Make a difference, be a hero!” has a dual meaning. Not only will we be embracing the Superflex Program and focusing on “Expected behaviors” to be the best we can be as students; but we will also be striving to make a difference in our classrooms, school and community. Students will be recognized weekly during our Friday morning broadcast for their heroic efforts to make a difference!
Frost School offers unique opportunities for learning both in and out of the classrooms. Teachers can extend the students’ academic experiences by conducting their lessons in our courtyard. It not only gives the students an opportunity to enjoy the beauty and serenity of nature; but it also teaches them about the importance of preserving and protecting our environment for future generations. In addition to the courtyard, Frost School also offers the students an opportunity to practice and improve their ability to infuse technology into their learning. Our grant-funded technology is an effective way for teachers to enhance classroom learning for the students. Whether it is a whole class activity, or a matter of using iPads for small-group instruction, these PTA-funded devices provide another means of meeting the needs of our Frost learners.
The PTA at Frost is integral to our success. We have a large parent volunteer program that serves many different purposes. Parents assist with students in classrooms as well as individually, work in the library, and volunteer during recess! The activities that are sponsored by the PTA have resulted in our ability to equip every classroom with a Promethean Board. They also offer teacher grants to support innovative ideas, and bring wonderful cultural arts presentations into the school that once again, serve to extend learning beyond the doors of the classroom. This year, the PTA funded a coding class for our fourth and fifth grade students, had the next phase of our sound system installed, and purchased ten additional Chrome books to be used in various classrooms. They are continuously looking for ways to enhance instruction for our teachers and students.
Frost School is made up of dedicated staff members who treat each child as their own. Many of them serve as advisors to our school sponsored clubs. Students may choose from such activities as Student Council, Gardening Club, Chorus, Safety Patrol, and Video Newsmakers.
Frost School is a “Community of Heroes”, staff and students alike. We work together, learn together, have fun together and strive to be the best that we can be. Come visit us at Frost and you too will be embraced by our heroism and want to make a difference!
