From the Principal

Forest Avenue Families:

Beginning with the Trimester II, report cards, which are scheduled to go out on Friday, March 24th, all three elementary schools will be publishing report cards in ASPEN. This means that paper copies will no longer be sent home with students unless requested by a parent /guardian. In ASPEN, report cards will be available under the Published Reports section on the Pages top tab. This puts the elementary schools in line with the middle and high school which also publish report cards electronically. Parents must have an ASPEN Parent Portal account to view electronic report cards. ASPEN Parent Portal accounts are automatically created using your student’s first contact email account. Parents and guardians will be receiving an email from ASPEN Help soon with your account information. If an additional account is needed, please create an Incident IQ ticket using the link below. Parents are encouraged to log into your ASPEN Parent Portal account. If you need help with your login credentials, please fill out an Incident IQ ticket.

This month Parent / Teacher Conferences will also be taking place. Here at Forest Avenue School they will be held on Wednesday, March 29th and Thursday, March 30th. This means that students will be dismissing at 11:45 AM on both days and evening conferences will be held from 6:30 – 8:00 on the 30th. To sign up for a conference, a link will be sent out via email from PCT Fast on March 15th. The link will also be available in our Weekly Announcements. I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to meet with your student’s teachers.

Finally, starting in April, our third and fourth grade students will be participating in State Testing. MCAS Testing in English Language Arts will take place in April followed by Mathematics Testing in May. Please be sure to check out the full testing schedule in this edition of the Falcon Focus.
