Freedom Park Takes Home The Gold - YOUNG GEORGIA AUTHOR'S REGIONAL AWARD - Ruby Mueller

Please join me in congratulating Miss Ruby Mueller 2nd grade for winning the Young Georgia Authors Award for the 2nd grade category in Richmond County. Miss Ruby went on to win the Regional Young Georgia Author's award. Wish her luck at the state contest.


Would you like to be an Eagle for the 2017-2018 school year? We would be happy to welcome you to the family.

What if I am a new Eagle?

If you are new to the area, there are a few things you can do. For your convenience, you may register online at: https://www.rcboe.org/Domain/9228. However, there is nothing better than coming by and meeting your new family. We are open everyday from 9 am to 4 pm. Stop by and meet us. We will be happy to show you around and register you for the new school year.

What if I am a returning family member?

There is no need to register "technically". Your student is automatically "rolled over" to the next grade level. However, we will need you to fill out registration paperwork to update our files. Please stop by the school to update your information. We will also send paperwork home the first week of school. But hey, don't be a stranger, we prefer you come by and see us before school starts. We miss you!


Students who scored below grade level on the Georgia Milestones will have an opportunity to retest. All students who performed below grade level must retest even if they did not attend summer school.

Future Eagles - Eaglets

At Freedom Park we understand 90% of children's critical brain development occurs by age 5. Children who are read to, sung to, and talked to from a young age develop larger vocabularies, become better readers, and are more likely to succeed in school. Start early to ensure your students success. Freedom Park would like to partner with you to prepare your child for early success regardless of where you choose for them to attend school. This program is for preschool aged children 2-5 years of age. Best of all, its free. Check out Smarty Ants, your kids will love it! https://static1.squarespace.com/static/587fbed9414fb56f5c146008/t/594adc69c534a51027f697c8/1498078317065/Smarty+Ants_Flyer.pdf
