FDES Spirit Wear
- Do you need help with ParentVue? If so than please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Does your K-2 student read at home for at least 15 minutes each day? Encourage him/her to participate in the library's monthly REACH FOR THE STARS program! These students will earn personalized lanyards and beads that they can wear at home and at school to share their reading success 🙂 Please reach out to our librarian, Wendy Ricci, if you have any questions! She can be reached at email@example.com
- We are learning a lot about vowels. Here is a cute video you can show your child at home to help them practice short vowel sounds.
