From Our Assistant Principal, Ms. Pazornik
Hello FRES Families!
Forest Ridge Elementary school will be administering a state mandated school climate survey during the week of November 22 in ELA classes to all 5th graders. The purpose of the survey is to gain valuable information about the quality and character of the school learning environment to help school administrators and teachers support student learning.
All students are expected to participate in the 20-30 minute computer based survey, which will be conducted during regular classroom time. The responses your child provides will be combined with the responses from other students in the school, and will be reported for our school and the overall district. Your child’s individual responses will remain confidential, and will not be reported to the school or district.

Congratulations to the following students, who were our Eagle Egg winners for this week:
Olivia K., Ram T., Alina T., Eliphelet S., and Brianna B.
