February News

We hope the new year has started off well for all of you. We are busy with learning new things every day here at Forsyth Elementary School. We are in high gear and ready to tackle the second semester. Our focus remains to create the best learning environment possible. High quality instruction and student learning are our highest priorities. The partnership between home and school is a key ingredient for student success. We strive to make sure your children feel safe and supported.

It's hard to believe we have passed the half way point of the year. Please continue to practice those math facts and read with your child daily. Reading adds up! Children who read at least 20 minutes a day do better in school. Bedtime is a natural opportunity to read.

Please continue to adhere to the Forsyth Elementary School's procedures concerning parent pick-up and drop-off as we love our students and safety is our number one priority. Please wait until 2:45 p.m. to arrive to pick up your child unless your have a preschool student. Please do not drive around the vehicle in front of you. We appreciate your cooperation in helping keep our students safe.

School begins at 8:05 am. If you children arrive after 8:05, please check them in at the office for a pass to class. Thank you for your cooperation, it is important to have accurate attendance for student safety.

As the cold weather continues, we would like to stress the importance of students wearing the appropriate winter outerwear. Our goal is to have kids go outside for recess whenever possible because outdoor play is fun and good for them. If your child is in need of outerwear, please contact the elementary office.
