  • FPE Newsletter for the week ending 5/17/19

    Find the latest about FPE in our latest newsletter, FPE Newsletter 5/17/19.

    From Principal Lisa Newlyn


    What a fun filled night Friday night!  Even the rain (a first in my memory) didn't damper our spirits.  Friends of Forest Park Elementary is our annual organizer, and I want to give a special thank you to Steph, Kimie, Mike, Chris, and a host of volunteers for putting everything together.  

    An extra special part of our annual Spring Carnival is the 5th grade Obstacle Course.  Thank you Robin and Mike for making this year's version so much fun.  Kiddie pool?  Why not?!  Parents may or may not have contributed to cheating in the end . . . =)

    If you're interested in knowing how you can help in FPE's planning, volunteering, and the like, please join us this coming Thursday, 5/23 @ 6:30pm in the FPE library.

    This is a busy time of year for our students and staff.  There's lots to take time and celebrate and lots of work to do before the year comes to an end.  Transitions can be tricky for some students.  Saying good bye to friends and teachers is hard, even if you are returning to FPE in August.  If your child is showing signs of anxiety (extra hyper, unusually sad or tired) please don't hesitate to let Miss Lizzie or me know.  We are happy to help!

    For your reference, as we prepare for the upcoming school year, we welcome parent input, but please read the guidance and information from me at this link: Parent Input for Building Class Lists 2019-2020 Thank you!  Deadline for input has been extended to May 24th.

    Read on below for more news from our school and community partners.

    5th Grade Leadership Service Project  May 20- May 24

    Dear Forest Park Community,

    As a group, we have decided that we would like to help people that are less fortunate than us. We are asking for donations of the items listed below, so that we can create care kits for the homeless. We will be collecting the items in the lobby area of the school starting Monday, May 20- Friday, May 24, 2019. Please let our School Counselor, Ms. Lizzie, know if you have any questions, and thank you for helping us with our project!
