Hello Families,

It is October and our fall FRES PTA activities are in full swing!

Our first movie night of the year will be Friday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. We’ll be showing the Lego Batman Movie. There will be concessions for sale. Come on out for a great night. Watch for the flyer to come home soon.

Flyers also went home this week about our 5th Annual Halloween Dance. It is a TON of Halloween fun complete with a DJ, face painting, games, and the ever-popular haunted hallway. The cost is $5, and the dance runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28.  This is a huge event that requires MANY volunteers; from set up and decorating, help that night with games and the hallway, to cleaning up afterward. This is an all-hands-on deck kind of event.  Be sure to check the SignUpGenius listed below. New this year—the incentive for volunteers is FREE admission.

Have a great weekend.  Get out and have some fantastic fall fun!

Tickets will cost $5/each and will be available soon! This event is for FRES students and their parents only. Due to space limitations, we cannot accommodate older or younger siblings and strollers. In the meantime, planning has begun, and we do need to start rounding up volunteers. WE NEED LOTS AND LOTS OF HELPERS to make the dance a success. New this year -- sign up for at least a one-hour slot, and you will receive a FREE Volunteer Ticket to the dance. Visit the SignUpGenius at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f49acaf2da2f49-fres to see what volunteers are needed! In addition, please send an email to contact@frespta.org if you are able to donate or loan decorations.
