The FRES PTA typically meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm in the Media Center. Please come and join us.
The Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) Board of Education defines acceleration as allowing a student to move through traditional educational organizations more rapidly, based on readiness and motivation. Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student’s age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities in either Math or English/language arts. SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of content of select elementary or middle school courses without having taken the course.
During specified nomination windows, parents or teachers can nominate students to skip a grade level of content in either English Language Arts OR Mathematics. Students may only be nominated and assessed for SSA in ONE subject area. To learn more about the program and the nomination window, find information here.
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.
FREE AND REDUCED-PRICE MEALS
We want to make sure all qualified families are enrolled for free and reduced-price meals. The application for meal benefits must be completed annually. If your family qualifies and you have not completed an application for the 2018-2019 school year, we ask that you complete an application now.
For families who qualified for the 2017-18 school year, we have continued to provide school lunches for students this school year. On October 7th any student without an approved application for 2018-2019 will be expected to pay full price for breakfast and lunch.
Application forms are available at all school sites. You can get information on the Meal Benefits Program online at http://www.wcpss.net/Page/1849 or talk with your school. You can reapply at any time throughout the school year.
It is important children feel prepared without feeling overwhelmed. Talking with your child and involving your child in the preparations can help ease their fears.
