From the President

Tis the Season for snow days, right?  I'm sure we can all relate with each other about keeping our days straight.  The girls actually went sledding on the snow day.  There wasn't a ton of snow, but they made it work.  
I just want to remind you of a few things coming up in the next two weeks.  First, next Friday, the 26th is our next skate night.  Let's meet up with our FRES Friends, stay warm while having fun and getting some movement.  Roll over to Laurel Skate Center from 7-10!  $9 pays for your admission and skate rental.  Hope you can join us.
Then, give yourself a break from the cooking and head to Tampico Grill in Laurel on Wednesday, Jan. 31.  You can go anytime throughout the day for a delicious meal.  PTA is sponsoring this event and the proceeds from this Spirit night will be given to the 5th grade to help defray the cost of their big trip to Mt. Vernon. 
Wrap up the week with our next Movie Night on February 2.  The kids are voting on the movie this week, and next, with Ms. Yost and Ms. Wise.  Stay tuned.
Have a great weekend!
