Dear Forest Glen Families,


I resent an earlier Eagle Briefs in error.
Here are a few more February Updates:

Congressman Peter Roskam to Visit

DARE Graduation

Brainetics Assembly for Level 3 Students
On February 26, Mike Byster will share his Brainetics learning program with our Level 3 students.  Level 3 parents are invited to attend the assembly that begins at 10:00 AM.  For more information, click on the flyer attached to this e-blast.

Parent Meeting on PARCC and MAP Testing
On February 25 at 7:00 PM, Forest Glen staff will provide information for parents on the following assessments:
  • MAP - Measures of Academic Progress (administered to all students)
  • PARCC - Partnership for Assessments and Readiness for College and Careers (administered to students in grades 3 - 5)
The meeting will take place in the FG LMC. 

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.

Outdoor Recess
As a reminder, if the wind chill is 10 degrees or above, our lunch recess is held outdoors.  Please be sure your children come to school with hats, gloves, and warm coats.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
