The Adinkra symbols of Ghana are timeless and still used today. Originally created by the Akan people of Ghana, the symbols represent concepts or original thoughts that were viewed as essential aspects of life and the surrounding environment.
Frederick Elementary’s pillars are Wisdom, Leadership, and Community. The Shield in the logo represents stability, protection, and longevity. The color blue represents leadership and green represents community and harmony.
Why the Wisdom Knot?
Smart people possess a lot of information. Wise people know how to use information to create change. Each day at Frederick Elementary School, we challenge our learning community to ask questions, think critically, and always do their best. As a community, we use wisdom, patience, and creativity to collectively solve problems.
Each student, staff member, parent and community member has the ability to be a leader at Frederick Elementary School; and, with leadership comes the responsibility to help others maximize their potential.
Statement of Purpose
At Frederick Elementary School, we educate and develop future leaders to use wisdom in solving complex problems and leading change, for themselves and their communities.
Although the Wisdom Knot symbolizes the foundation for Frederick Elementary School, additional Adinkra symbols will be used as icons to represent structures and programs within the school.
