Information for Parents

  • Science EOG Information 

     We want to share a resource with you regarding the science EOG. The resource highlights the four major unifying themes (Force & Motion, Weather, Ecosystems, and Human Body Systems) that are studied in 5th grade and tested on the EOG. The resource includes links to StudyJams, which may have been viewed in class, but serve as a great resource for review - especially for concepts introduced earlier in the school year! Each StudyJams video or slideshow includes a "Test Yourself" feature which can also give students practice with answering multiple choice questions.
     
    The parent information page is available in English: goo.gl/BfcLst
    and it's available in Spanish as well: goo.gl/Zig0K6

  • Support FRES at Harris Teeter

    Parents you can help support student activities here at FRES when you shop at Harris Teeter. Through their Together in Education program we will earn money when you purchase HT brand products. Just link your VIC card to Forestville Road ES, our school code is #6061. You can visit your local Harris Teeter store and ask a cashier to link your card to our school TIE code, or you can visit www.HarrisTeeter.com and link your card online. There is no limit to how much our school can earn, so please encourage all your friends and family to support FRES by linking their VIC cards to our school also. REMEMBER you must link your card every year, so even if you've done it in the past, take a minute to re-link your card so we continue to earn cash for student activites here at FRES.

Reminders

  • September is Attendance Awareness Month

    Getting your child to school on-time, every day, unless they are sick, is something that you can do to ensure your child has a chance to succeed in school. While others can help, you are the bottom line. You can promote good attendance when you:

    • Establish and stick to the basic routines (going to bed early, waking up on time, etc.) that will help your child develop the habit of on-time attendance.
    • Talk to your child about why going to school every day is critical and important unless they are sick. If your child seems reluctant to go to school, find out why and work with the teacher, administrator or afterschool provider to get them excited about going to school.
    • Come up with back up plans for who to turn to (another family member, a neighbor or fellow parents) to help you get your child to school if something comes up (e.g. another child gets sick, your car breaks down, etc.).
    • Reach out for help if you are experiencing tough times (e.g. transportation, unstable housing, loss of a job, health problems) that make it difficult to get your child to school. Other parents, your child’s teacher, principal, social worker, school nurse, afterschool providers or community agencies can help you problem solve or connect you to a needed resource.

    If your child is absent, work with the teacher to make sure she or he has an opportunity to learn and make up for the academics missed.
