    A Message from Dr. Loften-Cooke, 

    On behalf of myself and the staff at Forest Street School, I am happy to welcome you to the Forest Street Community School! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child's education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children's success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child's learning by ensuring that he/she:

    • Attend school daily and arrive on time ready for the day's learning experience.
    • Complete all homework assignments given by teachers.
    • Read daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
    • Share school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.
    • Inform you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.
    • Know that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college.

    Students can enter the building at 7:30 a.m. to participate in the breakfast program or by 8:30 a.m. before the first bell. Dismissal for students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade will be at 3:20 p.m. and students in grades 3rd through 7th. Âll grades will be dismissed at 4:30 p.m. from our Project Achieve and Microsociety programs. There will be a sibling Microsociety class for students in kindergarten grades through 2nd.  If there are any spaces available in grades kindergarten through 2nd, we will take these students on a first come first served basis.

    Please consider joining our school PTO as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school's program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with many of our school-wide events; student recognition events; outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers. We welcome any new ideas and suggestions that you feel would benefits all of our children at Forest Street Community School.


    Dr. Loften-Cooke, Principal
