Dear Forest Families;

We hope you all had a wonderful relaxing winter break filled with family fun.

Winter NWEA testing will begin the week of January 15.  All students will be assessed in reading and math.  This will allow teachers the opportunity to see how the students are progressing this year and differentiate instruction to meet the individual needs of their students.

On, Wednesday, January 10 members of the Grand Valley State University Charter School Office staff will be visiting Forest to complete our charter school renewal.  GVSU staff will meet with select Academy and FBR staff as well as observe instruction in classrooms.  GVSU authorizes our Charter which allows us to offer education to K-8 students.  We are excited for them to visit and look forward to sharing the amazing things Forest Academy has to offer.

Please mark your calendars for a few upcoming events.  Information regarding each event will come home soon.

January 25 Chuck E Cheese Family Fun Night
February 9 Valentine Sock Hop Dance
February 28 School Wide Celebration

Happy New Year!
