From the President
Hello FRES Families,
Man does FRES have talent!!! From auditions, rehearsals and final performances the kids worked really hard and last night all that hard work paid off. They did an amazing job. The Variety Show is just one example of how we can experience the rich culture of FRES, through the performances of students with different backgrounds. Thank you to all of the performers who entertained us with your talents. Thank you, also, to all who made it such a huge success- Tangie Smith, Penny Keller, Meara Hartzer, Jen Gifford, Leigh and Bill String, Aubree Legler and Mrs. Chrzanowski. They all worked together like a well-oiled machine. Thank you all so much.
Cookbooks are still on sale! There is NO DEADLINE to purchase. We have them right here in our possession. For just $7, you will receive recipes from FRES families to enjoy for years to come. Just bring in your order form with your money in an envelope OR just a piece of paper with your child’s name and teacher’s name in an envelope. The book will go home with them by the next day. The class with the most sales will WIN A PRIZE!
Most of the PTA activities are winding down as is the school year. Our last meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 12. If you have helped with PTA in any way this year, we encourage you to join us for this last meeting. There will be very brief business meeting followed by celebrating a terrific year with refreshments and socializing. Please join us for our last hurrah- 7:00 in the Media Center.
Have a terrific Memorial Day weekend! Take time to remember all of the brave men and women who died for our privilege of freedom and our country.
