All coke product codes are double until Nov. 17. We enter these codes found on all coke products for our school and they send money to the school to buy PE equipment. They are found under the lids on coke product drinks (each one of those is worth .10 right now) and they are found on the cardboard 12 pack cartons and the plastic wrap (each one is worth .75 right now.) Below are all the products that have codes on them. If you drink any....save the codes and send them in! Thanks!!
Rockingham County Sheriff Bryan Hutcheson visited Pre-K today. Showing his support of Jumpstart's Read for the Record 2017, he read this years campaign book Quackers by Liz Wong. He did an amazing job with this funny story about accepting others, there was a lot of laughter in the room! We appreciate him coming each year to participate in this event that encourages adults to read with children.
Pre-K is also learning about community helpers. They asked questions about his uniform, held a sheriff's badge and gave high fives to Sheriff Hutcheson.

Congratulations to Kylie Simmers, 5th grade on her winning design for the cover of the 2017-2018 FRES Yearbook. Finalists were Hunter Fulk, Taylor Dove, Mason Dellinger and Caleb Estep. The finalists artwork will also be displayed in the yearbook. The entries were exceptional, making the voting very difficult!
First grade teacher Chris Grim was inspired to help schools damaged by hurricane Harvey & Irma by a Facebook post she read. She signed up to help and was connected to a classroom at Johnny T. Clark, Jr. Elementary in Baytown, Texas within a couple weeks. Teacher Marty Hooks shared with Ms. Grim that many of her students were still homeless due to the flooding and that their school had significant damage and loss.
Ms. Grim shared the story with staff at FRES and that's when the FRES family got involved. FRES students competed by classrooms to collect the most items and in total collected 1224 items! (Fifth grade won the competition with over 200 items collected and enjoyed ice cream to celebrate their efforts!) Some students wrote letters to the students in Mrs. Hooks first grade to show support and encouragement. Some of the students donated their "good" prizes they had earned for good behavior here at FRES. In addition, our community donated $400 which was used to buy items such as backpacks, lunch bags and a $100 Wal-Mart card so that Ms. Hooks could purchase supplies her students may still need.
So many students expressed their willingness to help pack the items that a packing party was planned. The entire student body gathered in the gym where Mrs. Sims, Principal and Ms. Grim, 1st grade spoke to the students about caring and giving from the heart. They both expressed how proud they were of the outpouring of compassion and caring the FRES family had shown. Fifth grade helped to direct younger students to put their items in the correct boxes and with 170 students helping, within minutes the items were separated. The items were transported to Winchester, VA where Fabritek Company, Inc.
prepared the items to be loaded into a truck and shipped to Baytown, TX. Fabritek Company, Inc. also paid half the cost of shipping and the other half was donated by an anonymous donor. FRES thanks everyone who contributed to this effort with heartfelt appreciation!
