Dear FRES Families,
Today starts the 2nd quarter. Our students have faced many new challenges this year. Please take some time this weekend to celebrate your child/ren’s many successes. This week and next we are celebrating their 1st quarter accomplishments with Pumped Up Recess and grade level award ceremonies. To put it simply, our students are amazing!
Report cards will be available 11/10 at 5:00pm. This is a great time to reflect on both their academic and social/emotional learning accomplishments.
November conferences sign up begin on Monday, 11/8 at 8:30 a.m. Fall conferences will be held virtually with your child’s homeroom teacher focusing on Reading. If you have any questions and/or concerns in regards to math and/or a related arts, please email the teacher directly. Please refer to the separate email regarding signing up for conferences.
We hope everyone has a great weekend. Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour on Saturday night.
Mr. Conroy and Ms. Pazornik
