Achieving Student Success Through a
Renewed Focus on Academic Rigor and Safety
It is with great honor that I bring you greetings from the illustrious Richard Nathaniel Fickett Elementary School. Fickett is a 21st Century UPS Technology School, where partners, parents, and other stakeholders assist to promote student success.
At Fickett, we are focused on achieving student success by providing all students with access to quality, rigorous curriculum based on the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards. We are purposeful and strategic with our actions plans as we strive to achieve a 90% student achievement rate in reading, mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies. We also aim to achieve a 90% rate in student attendance.
Fickett's parents and partners are vital lifelines to our student's success. We welcome the support of parents, grandparents, guardians, community members, and other stakeholders in our effort to meet the needs of all students. We appreciate UPS for remaining committed to Fickett through their sponsorship of the UPS Scholars Program, Girls Mentoring Program, and UPS Science Lab. Students will definitely enjoy learning scientific concepts through hands-on, inquiry based approach. This year, we are excited to kick off our Robotics program through our partnership with 100 Black Men and Boeing. These relationships help us in maintaining our status as a a high-performing elementary school in an urban environment.
We are doing great things here and look forward to seeing you soon!
