Dear FRES Community,
Wow what a great last day! Today we clapped out our 5th graders as they paraded around the school. I am so proud of all the hard work from our students and staff. Everyone has earned this well deserved summer break. Report cards will be issued and available for viewing on June 16th at 4:00 p.m. You can view the directions on the HCPSS website if needed.
I would like to thank our staff who are moving on to other schools or adventures. All of these staff members have made tremendous contributions to our students and community and they will be greatly missed!
Scott Conroy, Principal
Clair Wise, Instructional Technology
Iris Patterson, Vocal Music
Tim Bayne, Math Intervention Teacher
Holly Flanagan, Social Worker
LouJean Purcelley, School Counselor
Maura Burke, Grade 2 Teacher
Tanya Sanders, Pre-K Paraeducator
I will share more about staffing and welcome our new staff in the first Forerunner of the new school year in August. We will also share any internal staff changes at that time.
I hope that our students and their families have opportunities to connect and enjoy some less structured time this summer. I wish safe travels to those of you who are going on vacations or to visit family and friends! If you need anything over the summer, the FRES office is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.
Ivye Pazornik, Assistant Principal

Would You Like to Volunteer for Something You Can Do at Your Convenience?
Thank you to our wonderful volunteer who has been taking care of keeping our marquee sign updated for the last few years! She and her children will be moving to a different school next year, so we are in need of a new volunteer. You would keep the letters at home and choose important information (dates, etc.) from the Forerunner to post on the sign. This can be done during the day, in the evening, or on the weekend. Your children can even help! Training will be provided. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Thanks!
From the Front Office - Moving/Moved?
Please help us keep our records up to date - If you are moving over the summer but staying within Howard County, please use this Address Change form and email it to email@example.com along with your new residency documents (deed or lease, plus utility bill). We can let you know if your child will stay at FRES or attend a school in a different district. If you have moved or are moving out of Howard County, please use this Withdrawal Form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
