 Our Vision: Ignite Passion. Inspire Excellence. Imagine Possibilities.

On Friday, Forest Glen held High Interest Day, a highlight of the school year with smiling students spending the day exploring activities and topics far beyond the usual curriculum. Students in grades 3 -5 could choose from a range of workshops including digital photography, ice-cream making, squid dissection, reptiles, craft activities, cartooning, karate and even a session with local law enforcement's SWAT Team. Students in grades 1 and 2 participated in workshops related to study of the weather, while kindergarteners took a field trip to Kline Creek Farm in Winfield.


The event is sponsored and organized by the Forest Glen PTA in partnership with school staff, community organizations and local businesses. 

On Saturday, May 11, a fertilizer and weed control agent will be applied to the grassy areas on the grounds at all of the District 41 schools. The material will not be applied to the playgrounds, walkways or parking lots. This is part of the annual routine and is similar to the applications many homeowners make to their lawns at this time of year. The areas affected will be flagged after the application is completed. The water-soluble chemical will be applied in a liquid form. The application is being done over the weekend so as not to interfere with outdoor school activities. Material Data Sheets containing complete product information are available at the Central Services Office located at 793 N. Main St.
