    From Principal Lisa Newlyn

    Dear Parents and Families,

    Welcome back from No School November.  Trust me when I say, we are all glad for continuity of instruction and these solid weeks of routine as we head into the Winter Break. 

    Friday we welcomed PPS Superintendent Guadelupe Guerrero to Forest Park, along with Senior Director Lisa McCall.  I took them on a tour of our campus, where we spent time in several classrooms.  Superintendent Guerrero truly enjoys classroom experiences and talked to many many students as they worked in class.  I was proud to share details of our Food Drive and parent engagement as well as student achievement information and professional development for the year.  It was a pleasure to host him!

    Our December Spirit Assembly is this coming Wednesday and we have lots to share and celebrate.  Students earning Paws for Applause tix this past month have been voting on their choice of school-wide celebration: jokes in the cafeteria, music in the cafeteria, or an extra class recess.  We are excited to see which option got the most votes and announce our December celebration!

    I want to welcome two new staff members to our FPE Community: Mr. David Scott and Ms. Ayo Bababtunde.  Mr. Scott joins us as an educational assistant monitoring safety during lunch recess.  His teaching experience at West Hollywood Elementary has prepared him well for problem solving and safety practices for elementary school children.  Ms. Bababtunde joins us as our new School Nurse.  Her schedule will provide us with high quality staff training and student contact about once per week.  

    Keep your food donations coming!  This is our final week and our partner school communities are counting on our support.  If you've already donated, THANK YOU!  If you haven't yet, please take time to read below from our parent leads, Colleen and Julie.

    Please plan on joining me and our PTA at their monthly meeting on 12/12, 6:30pm in the FPE library.  Our PTA always gives me a moment of time to give an update on what's going on in the land of FPE, and asks me great questions.  If you're interested in staying connected to the latest FPE info, plan on joining us!

    Read on below for more information on what's going on in the land of FPE and ways you can stay connected to our community.
