It's been a big week in the forest with the chess competition, field trips, the 5th grade track and field event at White Oak High School and the Volunteer Appreciation breakfast on Friday. Congratulations to our 2nd/3rd grade chess team who placed 2nd in the district competition on Thursday and our 5th graders who placed 1st in the track and field events at White Oak High School.


A special thank you this week to our parent volunteers! We appreciate all you do to support our school community. Thank you to those volunteers who were able to join us for the celebration on Friday morning. They were treated to breakfast and entertainment by Mrs. Ellis' class.


Please note that next week is Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week in the forest. Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade parents are asked to donate breakfast items on Monday morning and 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade parents are asked to donate items on Thursday. Recommended breakfast goodies include muffins, bagels, juice, yogurt, fruit, breakfast casseroles, etc. Logan's will cater lunch for our teachers on Wednesday.
