Dear Forest Glen Families,


Here are a few February Updates:

5Essentials Survey
Please take a few minutes to provide us with feedback by taking the 5Essentials Survey.  This survey is based on the Five Essentials for School Success, an evidence-based framework developed by the University of Chicago.  The information we receive from the survey will help us identify how our school performs on five factors or "essentials."  This feedback will help the Forest Glen staff identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement.  The 5Essentials are:
  • Effective Leadership
  • Collaborative Teachers
  • Involved Families
  • Supportive Environment
  • Ambitious Instruction

Thank you in advance for taking this survey.
Click Here and select the appropriate survey to begin.

The survey is available now through March 13, 2015.

Valentines - No Candy Please
I am sure that your children are working on their valentines for their classmates.  Please do not include candy with valentines.  We only serve food items from the approved snack list.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
