Dear Forest Families;

144 pieces of Attendance Flare were given to students who had less than five absences during the second quarter.  Students will have another opportunity to earn Attendance Flare again in March at the end of the third quarter.  February Count Day is February 8.  Students who are absent on count day will need to provide a note to document why they are not in school.

Winter NWEA testing for all students kicked off the week of January 16 and will end on February 10.  Parent reports will be sent home after the testing window has closed.  Students completed winter testing in reading and math.  This provides teachers an opportunity to review data and differentiate instruction to help meet the needs of each of their students.

A Title I parent meeting is scheduled for February 1. Parents who attend will learn what Title I offers our students; explore strategies used in Title I to support reading instruction and gain tips on how to support your child is academic growth from home.

Academy staff will host a family fun night on February 2 at Chuck E Cheese.  Join us for a night of pizza and games while supporting your school.  Forest Academy will receive 15% of all inside sales.

Our Annual Valentine Sock Hop is scheduled for Friday, February 10.  Join us for a night of laughter, music and sweet treats.  Don’t forget to wear fun socks to help you dance the night away :smile:

Please remember that you MUST complete a re-enrollment form by February 10 to guarantee a spot for your child this fall.  New students to the Academy MUST complete an application.  Applications can be found on our website and in the main office.

Forest Academy is on Facebook.  Like our page and to receive reminders, event information and see pictures of artwork and activities completed at the Academy.
