Welcome all parents and students to the 2016-2017 school year. I am very excited about continuing a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. It is my hope that as the year progresses you will get to know the staff, the programs and the policies we offer in Forest Street School.
It is the goal of the staff at Forest to work with you to create a rich learning environment for all students. Student success is a shared responsibility between the school staff, students and parents.
As we work with our students to help them learn about the world around them through the curriculum, we truly appreciate the support that parents give their children at home as they strive to reach their educational goals. We ask that you guide and support your child's learning by ensuring that he/she:1. Attend school daily and arrive on time, ready for the day's learning experience.2. Complete all homework assignments given by teachers.3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.4. Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.5. Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.6. Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college.
I feel privileged to have the opportunity to serve allForest Street School students andI am\committed to developing
life-long learners and leaders!Sincerely,Ms. Yancisca CookePrincipal
