Thank you

Thank you for Supporting the FRES Auction! We raised a little over $12,000 that will fund improvements to the playground and every day activities at FRES! Every day activities include assemblies, incentive programs for attendance and behavior and mileage for field trips.

Thank you again to the businesses and individuals who donated items, services and monetary donations. We greatly appreciate the folks who generously placed their bids and purchased food from the PTO, Fat Boyz BBQ & More, and Branchs soft serve ice cream etc. Thanks to all who donated to the raffle baskets, PTO Food Booth, 3rd grade’s lollipop tree fundraiser and the FRES Staff for their hard work!

The Third Grade Lollipop Tree Fundraiser to benefit the proposed Walking and Bike Trail raised $219! Completion of the trail is a goal set by third grade students.

Mt. Carmel Church Donates Free Little Library in Honor of Mrs. Debi Emrich to FRES

Fulks Run Elementary School is excited to announce that we now have a free library available to the community and our school. Thank you to Mt. Carmel United Brethren in Christ’s Book Club for donating and installing the little, free library in honor of Mrs. Debi Emrich. What a great way to memorialize Mrs. Emrich’s dedication to our children and greater community! Book donations can be made to Lanae Conley or dropped off at Mt. Carmel UBC Church. Make sure you check out this new addition!

Little Free Libraries Installed In FRES Attendance Area

Hi All,

I am excited to announce that we have installed two of three Little Free Libraries in our attendance area! One is at the VFW at Chimney Rock on Runions Creek Road and the other is at Turner Hams. I am currently working with VDOT to obtain a land use permit to install the third at the park and ride in Bergton. These Little Free Libraries are fully stocked with books for young readers to adult readers. A Little Free Library is a free book-sharing box where anyone may take a book or share a book. They function on the honor system. You do not need to share a book in order to take one. If you take a book or two from a little library, try to bring some to share to that same library, or another in your area, when you can. Our goal with these Little Free Libraries is to increase the opportunities for literacy in our community among all age readers. This project was made possible with funding from Farmers & Merchants Bank and Steven Toyota, book donation by Peggy Biller and friends and donation of time and labor by Dennis Biller and family.
