One of the most important decision-making groups at Forest Hill is our elected School Site Council. The Council is composed of five parent and community members and five representatives from the school’s staff.

The Council reviews the school plan annually, establishes a budget, makes modifications as necessary, and assists in the evaluation of the school’s programs. Members are elected by the groups that they represent. Parent and community representatives are elected for a two-year term and may stand for re-election upon the completion of each term.  If you are interested in running for the Council, please submit your name to the front office by Friday, September 30. The voting ballot will be sent home on Monday, October 3 and returned to the front office by Monday, October 10.  The elected council member will be notified and his/her name posted in the front office on Thursday, October 13.

There is currently 1 seat to be filled. The candidate receiving the most votes will serve on the Council as a parent/community representative. Write-in candidates receiving votes have an equal opportunity to be elected or serve as alternates on the Council. We meet 4 times throughout the year on weekday afternoons at 3:00 pm.

"The recent California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) scores reflect a ‘snapshot' in time of our progress towards mastering the Common Core State Standards, but they don’t tell the whole story,” said CUSD Superintendent Eric Andrew.  “We are disaggregating these results and reviewing our other assessment data to pinpoint where we need to bolster our instructional practice and ensure that all of our students succeed.” 

 He added that schools start this year with the newly adopted curriculum in our classrooms, 1-to-1 technology in nearly all grades, and students who are energized by the project-based learning we are able to provide through community partnerships. "We are going to leap ahead this year,” he said.

As of September 14th, the testing company is shipping the individual student reports to the district office. As soon as we receive them we will mail them to parents. More information about the State assessments and a link to the data is available on our assessment web page.

On September 8, the State Board of Education approved key elements of a new accountability system that evaluates schools and districts in 10 areas critical to student performance. Read the news release.

Saturday, September 17 was Coastal Clean Up Day.  A number of Forest Hill students and their families helped to clean up about a half mile of the creek behind our school. Many hands made light work.  The volunteers removed approximately 55 pounds of trash and 15 pounds of recyclables out of the creek. The creek was clean in a little more than an hour. A few of the volunteers were disappointed that there was so little trash to pick up!  The eager Forest Hill volunteers include brothers Andrew and Kevin Chen, Christopher Henry, Celena Pirkl, Kalie Hand, David and Ellie Foulkes, Emily Crecelius, Amelia Ocher, and Will Louderback. Former Forest Hill students lending their hands to the task include Natalie Hand, Joseph Crecelius, Tadayoshi Pirkl, and Julia and Olivia Ocher. There will be another creek clean up in late May.

We surveyed our students last week on how they travel to Forest Hill. 62% of our students are coming by car. We need your help! Please consider having your child walk or roll to Forest Hill. You may want to talk with your neighbors to start a walking school bus. Parents can walk a group of children to a meeting location then another parent can take them the remaining distance. We will take another survey in October. Let's see if we can increase our walking and rolling to school percentage!
