From Mr. Monnin

January 2017
 
On behalf of the Forest students and staff, we sure hope you had a great holiday break! This is a time when we are all to be truly grateful for the goodness around us, and not to take anything or anyone for granted. I hope this holiday season energized your spirit as we step into 2017!

We had a wonderful treat from Chestnut on Monday, December 19th, as the 6th grade band and orchestra came to share their musical talents with the Forest students and staff. They played a variety of songs, including many that the students could sing along with. We thank Mrs. Kilbane for pulling this together. Many Forest students left the program expressing their interest in playing an instrument when they get older. This worked as a great opportunity for the music program to market itself to our kids!

January is bound to be a cold month. Please make sure to send your child with a warm coat, a hat, gloves, and boots to wear. We plan to go outside if the weather permits for recess. If the outside temperature or wind chill falls below 20 degrees, we stay in for recess. This is our benchmark.

As 2017 rolls in, we will be busy as we continue to grow and learn. It’s hard to believe that the first semester is winding down. The year is almost half over! Our students have done an outstanding job working hard to improve in their reading and their math skills. Your support and consistency at home truly helps to make your child’s learning continue to grow and develop. Together, we can continue to make positive steps.
To begin our first day back for 2017, our students were treated to an assembly by the one and only, Jim Basketball Jones! He came to Forest at 9:30am and shared his basketball wizardry with all of the kids while sharing his message of always giving great effort. His talk today revolved around never giving up and always trying their best. It tied right in to our school theme of “Try Everything!” Please ask your child about the assembly and what they remember about the program. He is one of the best programs out there! 

As we move forward here in 2017, let’s all continue to commit to helping our students grow in their learning and their efforts each and every day!
I wish you a super January. Please call or email if you have any questions.
