A Note from the Principal

Greetings to all of our Forest Park Families! We have had a wonderful start to the school year! Thank you for your support through sending supplies, making sure your child is ready for each school day, and your encouragement. We appreciate you and are grateful to partner with such amazing families!

This Friday, students will be dismissed at 12:20. KCS has designated four days this school year as Early release days to allow all staff members to participate in school and district professional development. These Early Release dates are September 17, October 8, February 11, and March 17. We believe that growing as educators helps us to be better equipped to teach all of our students.

Important Dates to Remember

  • September 1-30 World's Finest Chocolate Fundraiser
  • September 17 Early Release Day - Dismissal is at 12:20.
  • September 21 Picture Day
  • September 30 Turn in chocolate or money for the fundraiser

School Picture Day

Strawbridge Studios will be here next Tuesday, September 21, to take pictures of students. Students should wear their regular uniform to school on picture day. These pictures will go in the yearbook and may also be purchased. Please use the picture envelope or go to the Strawbridge Website if you would like to order pictures.

World's Finest Chocolate Sale

Please help us purchase two more Promethean boards and one more large screen TV to support instruction in classrooms. We have been able to purchase them for every other classroom and really want to make sure that all rooms are equipped for students to learn using the most up-to-date technology.

Each box of chocolate holds 60 bars. Please check out a box and bring back the $60.

Thank you!

Title 1 Family Night

We are looking forward to having our Title 1 Family Nights over the next few weeks. These events will be held virtually over Zoom. During this time, you will learn about our school and what it means to be a Title 1 school. You will also be able to hear from the administrative team, enrichment team, and your child's teacher.

Please see the times below and refer to your child's ClassDojo for further information including his or her zoom link. We hope to see you on zoom!
