Forsan Junior High/High School Family Newsletter

Last Update: Aug 11, 2021, 4:52 p.m.
We will be so excited to see our returning and new Forsan Buffaloes on the first day of school, Thursday, August 12!


We have welcomed a few new staff members to the campus: Stacey Park will teach sixth grade social studies; Luke Wyatt will teach seventh grade science, IPC (integrated physics and chemistry), and chemistry; and Patricia Sherrod will work in our cafeteria. Each of these people will be a great fit with our campus team.


Keith Stone will continue to teach Financial Math for high school and will also be our interim assistant principal. Jeff Shelton will teach two high school social studies classes and will work with our technology department. Seth Johnson will teach a college math class through Howard College on campus.


In high school, we have added an esports team, sponsored by Kit Kraus, and Keith Bagnall has been preparing this summer to add a barbecue team. We will expand our efforts this year to support students to make good choices and build character. Our tenth graders will have an opportunity to learn to support their peers with mental health.


Our teachers have been hopefully resting and relaxing this summer, but they have also been attending trainings to be even better for the upcoming school year. Our paraprofessionals have also attended training and have helped us prepare to start the school year. Our custodians and maintenance crew have our building ready for our students and staff. Our staff has created an exceptional schedule for the year.


We do our best to communicate well with our students and their families. Please check our social media and back-to-school information below. If you ever have questions or need more information, please call our office at 432/457-2223. For athletics in seventh through twelfth grades, check with coaches about the SportsYou app if you are not in already. I'll send a newsletter like this one each month listing calendar events and updates.


Our goal this year is to build on the Forsan legacy and continue to create success in academics and athletics. We look forward to partnering with our students, their families, and our community to reach our goals.
