Growth Mindset Quote of the Month
Test scores and measures of achievement tell you where a student is, but they don’t tell you where a student could end up. (Carol Dweck)

Dear Forest Avenue Families,
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Forest Avenue Fun Run. With your help we were able to surpass our fundraising goal of $20,000 and raised $32,821! This money will be used to fund our Home & School Budget and support other school-wide initiatives throughout the year. Our students, staff, and parent volunteers did a fabulous job supporting this event. A special thank you also needs to go out to all of the spectators who turned out to cheer on our students. The event was a fun day for all and soon we will be having one more celebration as Home & School will be providing ICEES for all of our students to enjoy.

During the month of December we will be holding Parent / Teacher Conferences. Please be sure to mark your calendar as we will be holding half days for conferences on December 14th and 15th with evening conferences taking place on the 15th from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. This year, Parents/Guardians will have the option for either a virtual meeting via Google Meet or an in-person conference here at Forest Avenue School. If you would prefer a virtual conference, please indicate this when signing up. Your child’s teacher will then send you the meeting link via email. If you choose an in-person conference please be reminded that if it is necessary to bring your children with you they should not be left unsupervised. Also masks must be worn in order to enter the building. With report cards scheduled to be sent home on December 10th, I hope that everyone will take advantage of this opportunity to meet with your student’s teacher.

Please be reminded that during the month of December we have a half day of school on Wednesday, the 8th for a Teacher In-Service. School will also be closed on December 24th through December 31st for holiday break. I hope that you and your family have a very enjoyable holiday season and a happy new year!
