Family Engagement Opportunities

 
There are many opportunities for our FRCS families to get involved. Studies have shown that Family Engagement is a key indicator of student academic success!  Our goal is to partner with families and provide them with as many engagement opportunities as possible. You must have a CORI on file with the school to participate in these programs. Download a CORI request form here.
