Happy December Forest Park Families,

The Winter Holidays are quickly approaching and there is so much excitement here at Forest Park! I am so grateful for the community of students, parents, and staff that we have here at Forest Park. This is truly an amazing place! I hope that you and your family are able to enjoy time together this holiday season!

Holiday Concert in the Park ~ December 7th

Forest Park students in all grades will perform their winter concert at Kannapolis Village Park on December 7th. We are looking forward to performing on the back patio of the Village Park building facing the amphitheater lawn. Village Park is located at 700 West C Street. The Celebration of Lights at Village Park, with more than 250,000 lights, will be an incredible backdrop for our students!

Please have students at the park by 5:30 so they are ready to perform at 6:00. The concert will begin promptly at 6:00 and all grades will perform that evening. Students performing should wear holiday attire!

We look forward to seeing you there!
