Principal's Message

  • Dear Forest Park Community,

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! It’s been wonderful seeing students’ smiling faces, even if we’re seeing them on screens for now. Until we can return in person, our teachers are putting in countless hours to learn all the tools needed to deliver Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). Despite the newness of teaching and learning this way, it is evident students are forming strong, positive relationships with their teachers and are engaging in meaningful learning every day.

    The saying, “We are all in the same storm, but we are not all in the same boat,” is especially true right now. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we navigate these often choppy waters together.  Please know we will partner with you and your children to make CDL as successful as it can be. 

    We look forward to having you and your children join Forest Park School for the unique 2020-2021 school year adventure. Whether we are at school, in person, or gazing at one another over our screens, we will continue to work tirelessly to support one another.

    With gratitude,

    Cindi Swingen, Principal

  • Important Update Regarding MAP Assessments

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский
    Dear PPS Families,
    Whether in more typical circumstances or during our current Comprehensive Distance Learning mode, it’s important for our educators to have the best possible understanding of their students’ learning needs (this is one of the reasons we began the school year with our soft start, which prioritized student-teacher connections). One of the tools PPS uses to help teachers with that understanding is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment.

    Dear PPS Middle School Families,

    We apologize for the confusion many students and families are feeling with regard to middle school schedules and expectations for distance learning instruction. We have worked with educators and administrators throughout this week to come to a more clear understanding related to middle school learning experience, and want to make sure you know what to expect as well.

  • MAP Assessments for PPS Students: September 28-October 23

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Parents and Guardians,

    As we welcome students back to the new school year, an important step for teachers is to understand your student’s most essential learning needs. To collect this valuable information, students will take Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. The MAP assessment is a low stakes test – this means that the results are not used for grading students or for school accountability purposes.
