Dear Forest Families,

It is hard to believe it is the end of the first quarter.  Fall parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for this week.  Our goal is 100% parent participation.  Report cards and NWEA parent reports will be provided at conferences. 

Attendance at school is important.  Arriving to school on time and staying the full instructional day maximizes student learning.  All students have an opportunity to earn Attendance Flair at the end of each quarter. Attendance Flair is given to students who have less than five absences for the quarter. 

All students completed fall NWEA testing.  This data provides teachers opportunities to differentiate instruction that support academic growth within the grade level curriculum as well as help their students meet their spring NWEA target goals.  Testing is completed again in the winter to monitor student progress and testing is completed in the spring to determine overall student growth.

Winter weather will be here before we know it.  School may close due to extreme or poor weather conditions.  School closings are listed on WWMT, WOODTV8, the school Facebook page and through the Remind App.  Please watch for Forest Academy as we do not always close when Comstock Public Schools close.
