Forest Grove School Goals Survey

Now that Spring is officially here, we are focused on having a successful completion of the school year while we also begin planning for the year ahead.

One of the most important aspects of our planning at Forest Grove Elementary School is setting our school goals for 2019-2020. We base these goals on our performance from the previous year and input from our staff, students, and families.

Here is where you come in.

The Forest Grove School Site Council - a group comprised of teachers, staff, parents, and the principal - have developed this survey for you to provide feedback and guidance for the year ahead.

We have intentionally made this survey brief to encourage as many people as possible to respond, knowing how busy life can be for families.

Please take a moment to respond as your feedback will be an important building block as we craft our goals for next year.

Here is a link to the survey: FG School Goals Survey

On May 24, students will celebrate academic success with a fun filled day of activities supported by the Forest Grove PTA. Parents and teachers are already hard at work making plans for another fabulous bash. We are seeking sponsorships to help bring fun, age appropriate activities to our school. Many of these activities are very expensive, and this is why we are reaching out to local businesses and families who would be interested in a tax deductible sponsorship. Our Tax ID number is 94-6171945. Please consider being a sponsor and help us make this the best event ever!
