First Day School Supplies

The Forest Grove teachers and the PTA have partnered to make the 2016-2017 school supply purchasing process simple. Together, we have refined the school supply lists and families are now able to purchase grade specific kits through 1st Day School Supplies. Families may order kits from now through June 15. The kits will be available for pick up prior to the first day of school in August, 2016. A flyer will be sent home to all students grades Kinder-4th grade this week. Please visit to order your kit before June 15th.

What is Scrip? It’s fundraising while you shop. Scrip fundraising gift cards are the same gift cards you would normally purchase from your local retail stores, and they work the same way. You’ll find gift cards you can use at grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, movie theatres, home improvement stores, etc. Look below for upcoming order and distributions dates.

Falcon Fest Sponsors

At the end of the school year, our students 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. This year many changes will be made to Falcon Fest and we need your help!

We are seeking sponsorships to help bring fun, age appropriate activities to our school. Many of these activities are very expensive and we simply do not have the budget for them. This is why we are reaching out to local businesses who would be interested in a tax deductible sponsorship. Do you own a business? Do you know someone who does? Or are you a family that just wants to contribute to this great event? Then please contact us and consider helping to sponsor Falcon Fest.

Each sponsor will receive recognition and will be included in the Falcon Fest Wrap-Up letter which goes home with all 480 Forest Grove Students! Please consider being a sponsor and help us make this the best event ever!
