Dear FRES Community,
Even though we’ve had a short week, we’ve had a busy week here at FRES. Our students continue to work hard and demonstrate kindness towards their FRES classmates. Today, we celebrated their hard work with our 2nd quarter PBIS Celebration. All students participated in Club Day and had many choices of activities. Some of the clubs were crafts, games, legos, movies, and drawing/coloring. Our students (and staff) had so much fun. What a great way to end the quarter!
Have a great long weekend,
Mr. Conroy and Ms. Pazornik
