Dear FRES Community,
The month of September has flown by! We've enjoyed the return of our students, staff, and families. We want to continue to thank you for your support with the many challenges this year has presented. As we start October and the seasons change, please remember to label all clothing.
It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful weekend, so take some time to enjoy the weather!
Mr. Conroy and Ms. Pazornik
