Register ASAP to attend “Ready, Tech, Go! Make Your Summer!” at FRES on Wednesday, May 24th from 6:30 - 8:00 pm!
The FRES PTA has been awarded a generous grant as one of only three locations in the U.S. to host the marquee launch of National PTA’s new program! Be sure to come by reserving your spot now: https://forms.gle/98fUeEMjDtzwUW3U8
Everyone gets free dinner, free summer activity gift packs, and the opportunity to win raffle prizes including a week of music camp at Bach to Rock ($279 value!), gift cards for Roggenart Bakery and for Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins, and a dozen opportunities for kids’ art and science kits! FRES students attend: “Make Your Summer!” - a rotation of three activities, "Make Art; Make Inventions; and Make Stories," inspiring them to create and invent this summer. While the kids are happily busy, parents and caregivers will participate in the new “Ready, Tech, Go!” presentation & interactive discussion to gain helpful tools & resources for determining phone readiness and for managing your child’s phone safety and usage.
