The FES Backpack Program is sponsored by Title 1 and can be used by any parent at FES. It is a way for us to share our many educational resources with parents of students in grades pre-k through five. Games, activities, and books to support your child’s learning can be sent home in a backpack for you to use with your child for up to two weeks. When you finish with the activities, send them back to school with your child and he/she will get new activities in the backpack within a day or two. You can ask for specific materials or request that the teacher recommend some. The activities are not meant for homework, but just as an enjoyable way for you to practice skills with your child.
If you would like to get more information or sign up your child for the Backpack Program, please email the FES Parent Liaison, Margie Cannella, at email@example.com.
