NWEA Testing Begins!

Our Fall NWEA Reading Test will be on Friday, October 2 and Monday, October 5. All students at Forest Hills are taking the tests on iPads this year. Data will be shared after the entire math and reading assessment has been completed.

Book Fair Next Week!

The Book Fair will be open from October 7-13 during school hours and conference hours. Funds from the Book Fair help us to purchase new books for our library. Our class will be visiting together on Wednesday, October 7 at 10:30am.

*Due to the Book Fair, we will not have our regular book checkout time on Monday. Students may still check out books, but at different times.

Earphones Needed

If your third grader still needs to bring earphones, please send them as soon as you can. We are using the iPads daily now, and the earphones are needed for certain apps. Thank you!
