Description:

The Family Resource Center offers a unique blend of programs determined by the needs of the students, teachers and families. The primary goal of FRYSC is to remove non-academic barriers to learning as a means to enhance student academic success. One way to reach our goal is through enrichment programs. Educational enrichment programs encourage students to learn through different methods as they enjoy engaging projects and activities beyond the pages of a book. Enrichment programs can incorporate topics which develops the children's' curiosity to learn something new and fun. The programs also increase skills and interest; enhance confidence and personal abilities while enhancing and enriching the school and community. Examples of educational enrichment programs coming up the first semester are below. As always, if you have questions, please call/email the Family Resource Center.

Programs
  • Handwashing HygieneHandwashing Hygiene

    One of the most important steps to keep staff and children in schools healthy is cleaning hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Schools promoting hand hygiene can result in less gastrointestinal and respiratory illness and fewer missed school days. Hand washing hygiene will be presented to preschool through 3rd grade by the BRDHD's school health education services during the first quarter.

  • Self-Care: Hygiene & Healthy HabitsSelf-Care: Hygiene & Healthy Habits

    It is important to teach kids the value of self care by creating healthy habits. When your grade-schooler reaches  adolescence, hormonal changes will lead to increased oil production and body odor. That’s when you'll be glad you didn’t wait until then to instill good health and hygiene habits.​Healthy habits help us manage stress and challenging situations. They protect us from negative events, like poor health. Building up routines that help us take care of our bodies, hearts and minds is a worthy investment. Self care will be presented to grades 4 and 5 by the BRDHD's school health education services during the first quarter. 

  • Self care & PubertySelf care & Puberty

    Puberty is a time full of change. It can feel both exciting and daunting! But being prepared with the facts, and feeling support from those around them, can help students stay confident throughout. Information will be sent home with students at a later date. Parents can click HERE for info. Self care and puberty will be presented to the 6th grade boys and girls separately by the BRDHD's school health education services during the first quarter.

The bicycle rodeo will take place in October for grades 3 and 4. 

  • Red Ribbon WeekRed Ribbon Week

    Red Ribbon Week takes place every year from October 23 through October 31. It began in 1985 after the tragic death of a DEA agent. In his honor, parents and youth in communities nationwide began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the destruction caused by drugs in America. The 2022 Red Ribbon Week theme is Celebrate Life. Live Drug Free. The theme is a reminder that we are all empowered with shaping the communities around us through positivity, bravery, and strength. We hope the theme encourages everyone to express themselves and their feelings no matter what.
