RCE Family Resource Center ( FRC)

December 2020

Dear Families,

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that FCPS is mourning the loss of our Superintendent, Mr. Emmanuel Caulk.Not only was he a great man, but also a great advocate for our families and students. I would like to ask that you keep his family in your thoughts during this very difficult time.

This is the most blessed time of the year. It’s Christmas. It’s the time when the family gets back together again. I am wishing you joy and blessing this Christmas with all my heart!

Our Next FRC Advisory Council Zoom meeting will be held on February 17th at 1:00 pm.

Weekend food bags won't be distributed during winter break.



Con gran pesar y les comparto que FCPS está de luto por la pérdida de nuestro Superintendente, el Sr. Emmanuel Caulk, quien no solo fue un gran hombre, sino también un gran defensor de nuestras familias y estudiantes. Quisiera pedirles que mantenga a su familia en sus pensamientos durante este momento tan difícil.

Esta es la época más bendecida del año, es Navidad! Es el momento en que la familia se vuelve a reunir. ¡Le deseo que pasen un tiempo de alegria y muchas bendiciones para su familia en esta Navidad con todo mi corazón!


La siguiente reuninon del consejo asesor del FRC sera el jueves 17 de febrero a la 1 :00 via zoom.

Para los que reciben bolsas de comida del fin de semana, no se estara distribuyendo durante las vacaciones de invierno.
