Grades on Campus

Student’s final grades within the Infinite Campus grade book will be available online at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, 6/13. Until that time, grades within the grade book should be viewed as preliminary as teachers are working on solidifying evidence of learning. Grades are not final until report cards are posted online on Monday, June 13th by 4:00 p.m.

If you do not see a grade for your child, please do not be alarmed. This simply means that your child’s teacher is solidifying their grade before posting it. Similarly, a change in grade over the final few days of school would also indicate that a teacher is entering final data into the grade book. If you have any questions, please contact your school directly.

NWEA Testing

Testing is FINISHED for the year! Results will be shared with families the last week of school. Watch for information to come home in June!

Clorox Wipes Needed

It's that time of year! If you would like to donate a container of wipes, that would be AWESOME! Thank you!

Bring a Game!

The last day of school (June 9), we'll celebrate with games! Please bring a board or card game to share with your classmates! Bring it in a bag, labeled with your name. Thank you!

Summer Device Opt-In Opportunity

Summer Device Opt-In Opportunity

To support continuous learning over the summer, students who have completed grades 3 through 11 will be eligible to take their district issued device home over the summer months and keep it through the school year. This will empower students to experience more learning opportunities even when they are not in the presence of a teacher. For students who want to take advantage of this opportunity, digital content will be provided by the district and hosted in Schoology. It is an "opt-in" model, meaning that if students would like to participate, they will need a new iLearn agreement signed by parents/guardians. The new iLearn agreements will be handed out via hard copy at individual schools.

Library Books To Be Returned!

Tuesday, May 31- Final day for student checkout

Friday, June 3rd– All student library materials due


If you are planning to move over the summer, and will not be returning to Forest Hills in the Fall, please let me know so I can notify the office. Thank you!

Lunch With Your Third Grader!

A reminder if you wish to join your child for lunch, our lunch time is from 12:15-12:35pm. Thanks!


Please remind your third grader to:

-return the planner each day signed by parent/guardian

Apps To Try...
