To our grade 1 families, welcome to the new school year. To our kindergarten families, welcome to the Forest Hill community.
Please remember to communicate your child’s after-school plans to their teacher. Feel free to send a note with your child the first day of school or email our new administrative assistant, Mrs. Ruth Ellis (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our daily schedule is the same as last year. Teachers will be on playground and drop-off duty at 7:55. Children will be dismissed at 1:50 (12:05 Wednesday). If you arrive later than 8:15, please ensure that you accompany your child to the office.
Kindergarten families, please remember that your child will attend September 5th or September 6th from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM (as per previous emails). Please be mindful when picking up your child that you are on time as a late pick up can be upsetting for children.
Thank you and have a wonderful school year.

New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey
The New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey is a provincial initiative of the Department of Social Development – Wellness Branch, in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and the New Brunswick Health Council (NBHC). The elementary portion of this initiative, the New Brunswick Elementary Student Wellness Survey, began in 2007-2008 and was repeated in 2010-2011 and in 2013-2014. The survey gathers information from students in grades 4 and 5 and parents/guardians of students in grades K to 5. It surveys attitudes and behaviours regarding healthy eating, mental fitness, bullying, physical activity and tobacco use.
By taking the time to complete this survey, students and parents can contribute to their school’s improvement plans and student wellness activities. On February 20th, our school will be participating in this survey, as we aim to improve the health and wellness of children in our community. If you would like more information on this survey, please call the New Brunswick Health Council at 1-877-225-2521.
