January is "GET ORGANIZED"' Month!
To align with many New Year resolutions, on Friday, January 17th, students and staff at FCRES recognized GET ORGANIZED month by cleaning out arranging, and re-organizing desks, folders, cabinets, chair pockets, backpacks, supplies, folders, notebooks, supplies, etc.! Organization, as you know, is a critical part of learning but many of students struggle with this skill for a variety of reasons. Therefore, building wide, in classrooms and small groups, we focused on the importance of organization and how it can contribute to our success!
