It is hard to believe that the school year is going so quickly and that we will be finishing the 3rd quarter this week. With the approaching 4th quarter, all teachers, along with the counselor and principals work cooperatively for next year to create classrooms of students that will work together and best fit the individual needs of students. Forest Park teachers know their students and colleagues well. They are aware of the chemistry required to make a positive learning environment. Because of that, their input is invaluable and the major consideration in making class lists. If you wish to provide us with information that will be beneficial in placing your child, please include qualities your child has as a learner and qualities of a teacher that you believe will help your child be successful. If you would like to provide us this information, please let us know in writing by March 29. Please remember that we do not take requests for specific teachers.
