Meet our new admin team!

The 2021-2022 school year is almost here! We are very excited to welcome students back after summer break and are looking forward to all of the new opportunities this school year will bring.

Along with my new role as principal of Forest Park, we also welcome John Brandes and Jenna Rosienski to the leadership team. As in previous years, our Associate Principals will support grade levels with Mr. Brandes and Ms. Rosienski sharing 6th grade, Mr. Brandes supporting 7th grade, and Ms. Rosienski supporting 8th grade.

Together we will work to make the 2021-2022 school year a great experience for our students.

FPS Staggered Start

As communicated in the most recent district newsletter, we will be doing a staggered start at the beginning of this school year. Please click the graphic above to view specific details on when your student should be attending school during those first few days of September.

The days that students do not attend during the first week are considered non-school days for those students. This means students will not be assigned any homework or virtual work; they will have no school requirements on those days when they are not in session. In addition, for students in grades 5K through 8, if you have a blended family with two last names, you may send those students on the same day during the first week of school.

Open House

Forest Park will be hosting an Open House on Tuesday August 24th from 5pm-7pm. Teachers will be in their classrooms to visit with students and their families and talk about the upcoming year. Students can also practice opening their locker, walk their schedule and stop in the office to pay fees (cash or check only!).

Open School Days

On Monday August 23rd and Monday August 30th from 8am-4pm, Forest Park will be open for families to walk their student's schedule, practice opening lockers, and stop in the office to pay fees (cash or check only!). On these days teachers will not be in their classrooms.

Student Schedules Coming Soon!

Our Student Services team is working diligently to process new enrollments, collaborate with our guidance counselors and finalize class lists as quickly as they can. Student schedules will be emailed to parents by Friday August 20th. They will also be visible in PowerSchool at that time.

Forest Park Athletics and Activities

Registration for Athletics and Activities for the 21-22 school year at Forest Park Middle School is now open. Registration is to be completed online only. No paper forms or sign ups will be accepted. Click HERE to see the communication that was recently sent out to families with information about Athletics and Activities including details on how to register your student.

Picture Day - September 22nd

Forest Park's Picture Day will be held on Wednesday September 22nd during the school day. Picture make-up/re-take day will be held in October for any student that missed our original picture day or for those that want to re-do their photo.
