Principal Update from Mr. Champigny

Forest Avenue Families:



Welcome to the first edition of The Falcon Focus, Forest Avenue School’s monthly newsletter that we will be publishing electronically to Forest Avenue Families on the first Friday of every month. The goal of the Falcon Focus is to provide you with information on all the great things that are happening here at Forest Ave and within the District. Each month you will receive updates and information on items such as: curriculum across all content areas, activities and events sponsored by our Home & School Association, progress made towards our School Improvement Plan, helpful tips concerning student wellness, and so much more.



What a pleasure it was to welcome all of our students back on Opening Day! The start of a new school year is such a special time. What a treat it was to see all of those smiling faces, as students met their teachers and settled into their new grade levels and classrooms. Thank you to our teachers, custodians, and staff for making the start to the new school year a success! I also want to give Ms. Harmon and Mrs. Beach a big shout out for all of their hard work in preparation for Opening Day.



In this edition of the Falcon Focus, be sure to check out the information on our new staff that has joined our school community. We are excited to welcome the following staff members to our school: Alana Peppersack (Preschool Teacher), Haley Freund (Grade 1 Teacher), Emma Duffy (School Psychologist), Jaylene Hurley (Para Educator), Brittany Tobey (Para Educator) Leah Donahue (Para Educator), and Katelynne Moore (Para Educator). Also joining our staff for the fall is Carolyn Carbonell (Art Teacher) who is filling in for Angela Wotton while she is out on maternity leave. As you can see we have been very busy hiring, but we are not done yet. We are still in need of a Kindergarten Para Educator and Building Substitutes. If you know of anyone who might be interested in these positions, please encourage them to email me at [email protected].



While it was a pleasure seeing all of our Kindergarten families during their Meet & Greet in August, we will be welcoming preschool students and families to their Open House on Wednesday, September 6th from 4:00pm – 5:00pm. Then on the evening of Thursday, September 14th, we will be hosting students and families in grades 1–4 for Back to School Night from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. I look forward to seeing and working with all of you throughout the school year! I hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable fall season.
