Hoops for Heart
Information regarding the P.E. team’s Hoops for Heart event has been sent home in folders.  Help us reach our goal of raising $7,000 for the American Heart Association!  We would prefer students asking for donations ONLINE – It’s easier for us and the families helping.  Students who have raised at least $5 in cash or check donations but would like to continue raising more can bring in the parent-signed coupon from the envelope that awards them their first prize (lanyard and lion keychain).  Students have until the first day of the event on March 13th to raise as much as they can!  The event takes place during PE in school, so everyone is participating, but asking for donations is optional.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Cassard of the P.E. department:  Samuel_cassard@hcpss.org

Here is a link to Forest Ridge’s Hoops for Heart page where you can sign up and donate online:

Hello FRES Families!
We have more and more crocuses in our front yard every day! Spring is sprung—but for how long? Spring is a time for PTA and the school community to ramp up again with all the activities from now until the end of the year. I encourage you to join other FRES families and check out the various activities that are planned.
