    From Principal Lisa Newlyn 

    Dear Parents and Families,

    Hello from Forest Park Elementary, the land of the Forest Park Foxes! I want to thank Allyson Kenney for spearheading this process, and to Beth Gardner for organizing staff and kids. Thanks also to Greg Maletic who is working on a new logo. We have a strong, vocal and involved community. I'm proud to see us come together for fun and celebration.

    Diwali Celebration, Friday - Our second annual Diwali celebration begins at 6pm this coming Friday. This non-secular event is meant to be informative, fun, and celebratory. Our goal two years ago was to find ways to bring more of our community together to celebrate our global citizenship. Thanks to Sunita Thaker and her team for working with kids and staff to make this once again a reality. Dr. Bob has some great ways for our students to participate with music. There will be great food, music, and lots of fun to share with your family!

    Rainbow Day 2016 - we are united, learning and growing together. No matter where we were born or the language we speak at home, our political affiliations or our favorite lunch, here we are all together for learning and growing together. Thank you, Bridget Meiners for sharing your photo talent with us to keep this tradition alive.

    Dear Forest Park Parents,

    Letters will be mailed the week of November 14th to parents whose children have incomplete immunization information. Should you receive a letter, please provide requested information as soon as possible. I am available to address any questions that you may have or to help identify a health care provider.

    Thank you,
    Tegan Leipzig, RN
    Forest Park School Nurse
