Winter Celebration

The entire third grade team is going to combine their winter celebrations. Students will move from room to room, participating in a variety of different activities. The celebration will be from 10:15-11:30am on Friday, December 18.

Submit Photos of Your Kids Reading for Read-a-Thon


One of our most anticipated events of the school year, the annual Read-a-Thon, begins in January! Once again we will be featuring a collage of Forest Hills students and families reading.


What you need to do...


Snap a picture of your child, your family, or even your pet reading between now and the end of winter break. The more creative, the better! Then email photos to eeskubic@gmail.com or drop off a copy of your photo in an envelope labeled “PTO READER PHOTOS” at the school office. Photos will not be returned. Photos should be approximately 4x6 inches and must be turned in by Wednesday, January 6. Pictures will be posted on the PTO bulletin board during Read-a-Thon in January. Students love finding their photo in the collage, so don’t forget to send yours!
