January 12th, 2018

 

This is a message from Mrs. Savoie, principal at Forest Hills School.

 

We had a great first week of the New Year here at FHS!  As you know, it has been very cold, so please make sure that your children are bundled up for the weather.

 

Please keep in mind that next Wednesday the 17th is a half day for students.  Dismissal will begin at 11:30.

 

February is Fitness month at Forest Hills School.  This year we will once again be hosting our popular Family Phys. Ed. Night.  Mark your calendars for Feb. 6!!  We want to see lots of parents and children come out to our awesome event where you will be able to participate in a variety of physical activities.  The doors will open at 6 and the event runs from 6:15-7:45.  The cost is free but there will be a $2 fee to play laser tag.  The YMCA will be picking up parents and students who live on Roxbury Drive and the apartments near Mystery Lake.  If you would like a drive, please be ready for the bus at 6 p.m.  Hope to see you all there.  

 

Cashless Schools will be coming to FHS very soon.  This will be a really convenient online system that you can use on a computer or phone to order hot lunch, pay for school clothes, sports, etc.  We will also have a computer available in the office for anyone who doesn’t have access to the internet.  Stay tuned!

 

Any students who are currently in Kindergarten, Grade 2 or Grade 5 who are wishing to be enrolled in French Immersion for next year, please go to the ASD-S website and scroll down to enroll.  The link is also under news on our website.  http://web1.nbed.nb.ca/sites/ASD-S/Pages/welcome.aspx

 

As always if you have any questions or concerns for the school, don’t hesitate to contact us at 658-5338.

 

Remember Falcons, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe!

 

         

Have a nice weekend,

This is a message from Mrs. Savoie, principal at Forest Hills School.

 

We congratulate Hillsong for their performance, “Jingle Bell Jukebox,” on Tuesday.  It was an amazing show and really highlights the talent here at FHS! Thank you to Mr. Goguen for directing, to other staff for choreographing, set painting and managing and to students for all of their hard work!  It was a great night!

 

The District policy for cold weather is that we will likely go outside unless it’s -20 or colder with the wind chill.  Please make sure your children are bundled up. Also, just let us know if you need mitts or hats.  I’ve posted the School closure, School delay and bus delay on our website and in this message.

 

 

 

Our last day before the holidays is Friday, December 22nd and it will be a half day.  Walking students will be dismissed at 11:30 and bus students will be dismissed as the busses arrive.  It’s hard to believe that the Christmas holiday is almost here!

 

As always if you have any questions or concerns for the school, don’t hesitate to contact us at 658-5338.

We would like to invite you to Hillsong’s performance, “Jingle Bell Jukebox,” on Tuesday, December 12th at 6:30 in the theatre.  We are asking for donations to the music program and 50/50 tickets and raffle tickets in support of our Christmas Families will be available.  We will end the evening with hot chocolate and cookies for our performers and guests.

 

Our elementary Christmas Concert will be on Tuesday the 12th.  We have three different shows throughout the day, so please see the website or contact the school to see when your children perform.  We will also have raffle tickets and 50/50 tickets available in support of FHS Christmas families.

 

It’s getting to be that time of year again when snow storms are upon us.  Hopefully we won’t have any half day cancellations, but just in case, please let us know if your contact information has changed.  Thank you.

 

Finally, it’s getting colder and colder so please make sure your children are coming to school bundled up.  We will try to be outside as much as possible.

We are still collecting new and gently used items for our annual Christmas Flea Market.  Please drop off items to the office anytime up until December 6th.  Thank you for your support with our FHS Christmas Families Project!

Hillsong also has rehearsal on Sunday from 1-4 and a Rogers TV performance at the Portland United Church on Tuesday at 6:30.

They will be offering complimentary cookies, candy canes, hot chocolate and popcorn and hope to see you there!

Report Cards will be going home on Monday.  In the report card is a Report Card Key that we would ask you to read carefully before reading the actual report card.

 

Here is one of the simplified scales we use with the students.

 

4                                              WOW!

 

3                                              Got It!

 

2                                              Almost There!

 

1                                              Oops, Not Yet!

 

Parent teacher on the 23rd from 4-7 and the 24th 1-3.  There will be no school for students on Friday the 24th. This is a great opportunity to bring in Flea Market items.  Also, although we won’t be having our silent auction this year, there will be different raffle booths set up and all money raised will help to support our FHS Christmas Families.  We appreciate your support!

 

We will be having a Scholastic Book Fair from November 22nd -24th

 

Reminder that there is Hillsong rehearsal on Sunday from 1-4PM.

This is a message from Mrs. Savoie, principal at Forest Hills School.

 

There will be no school on Monday in honour of Remembrance Day.  We held our school ceremony today at 11.  We would encourage families to attend a local ceremony on Saturday the 11th to honour our veterans.  Our Hillsong choir will be singing O’Canada and we will be laying a wreath at the Jarvis Bay Cenotaph.  We hope that you can join us.

 

There will be a French Immersion information night for grade 1, 3, and 6 entry (for next year) at Barnhill Memorial School on Wednesday, November 15th at 6:30.  If you are considering the French Immersion program for your child, you may wish to attend.

 

We will be having a Scholastic Book Fair from November 19th-24th.  We are looking for volunteers to set up and to run it, so if you are able to help out please let us know.

 

Report Cards will be going home on Monday the 20th with parent teacher on the 23rd from 4-7 and the 24th 1-3.  There will be no school for students on Friday the 24th.

 

It’s that time of year again to beginning working on our annual Christmas Families project.  We will not be having a silent auction this year, but will have 50/50 for sale at parent teacher and at the Hillsong performance.  There will also be raffle tickets for sale for 2 Christmas baskets.  We will also be having our annual flea market on December 7th and 8th.  We would ask that you start sending in gently used or new items (toys, books, movies, household, etc.)  This is a great time for students to buy small items for their loved ones.  We are not collecting clothing or large appliances.  Please drop off items to the office anytime now.  We appreciate your support!

 

Once again, it is getting quite chilly outside.  We will try to be outside as much as possible, so please make sure your children are bundled up.  There are a ton of items in the lost and found, so you may want to have a look for missing coats, hoodies, hats and mitts.

 

Remember Falcons, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe!

 

         

Have a nice long weekend,

In addition to the weekly principal’s message on the website, we will also be posting our daily student announcements.  Just go to the main page and look under “News.”

We’d like to remind you that there will be no school for students for the full day, Wednesday, November 8th.

 

There will be a PALs Sea Dogs game on November 9th.  Grade 3-8 students can enter a draw for tickets to the game.  Ballots and information will be going home today.

 

We are receiving a high volume of calls regarding after school arrangements.  Please make sure that you make arrangements with your child before school.  Also, if you could send a note for the teacher, it would help us cut down on classroom disruptions.  We do appreciate that changes come up from time to time.

 

Finally, it is going to be getting colder outside.  We will be going out as much as possible, so please make sure that your child is dressed for the weather.
