Forest Hills Polar Plunge Team

Do you want to be part of a team and help a great organization? We are forming a Polar Plunge team for Special Olympics at Forest Hills. Ms. Hansen, our Learning Specialist, has lead schools teams for the last five years and is excited to form the Freezing Falcons and Friends team. The plunge will look different this year, but we are excited to support Special Olympics Oregon. Please contact Kasie Hansen if you are interested: hansenk1@loswego.k12.or.us

Scripps Spelling Bee, Grades 4-5

Scripps National Spelling Bee has developed an online testing platform that will allow Forest Hills to host an online School Spelling Bee for interested fourth and fifth-grade students in January.


Our school champion will then move on to represent Forest Hills in the Regional Spelling Bee which also will also include online tests in lieu of in-person spelling bee events. More information on how to register for the online competition will be coming soon. In the meantime, here is a list of 450 words from Scripps to practice if you are interested in competing or just for fun! Once you have carefully studied all Scripps 450 Words, you can go on to study The Scripps Word List of Champions.
