Congratulations! You’ve made it through weeks at home combining working, parenting, teaching, and Spring Break. Whew! Take a few moments and give yourselves a pat on the back. We know all too well how challenging it has been as many of our staff are parents, as well.  

We are excited to share a new website where all of Forest Hill’s Distance Learning plans and resources will be available. We are referencing it as “Forest Hill’s Distance Learning Hub”. This hub will be updated weekly. We really hope that it will prove to be helpful. We will be using this website as the main source of communication and teachers will also be relying on Seesaw and/or Google Classroom to push out lessons. Please be checking your emails frequently.

Earlier this year, ten Forest Hill students participated in a voluntary national poetry contest by the Young American Poetry Digest.  This is the twenty-sixth year of the publication, which highlights the talents of young poets and provides a national audience for their most creative poetry.  This year’s theme was Haiku, a short Japanese form of poetry.  I am pleased to announce that all ten students were accepted for inclusion in their 2020 poetry book.  A complimentary book will be featured in our Forest Hill library for all students to enjoy.  Congratulations to our ten winners!

Our Program Asset for May is Asset #18: Young people being encouraged to spend time each week virtually connecting to the community via sports, clubs, or organizations at school and/or directly in community organizations. Our Forest Hill parent readers have been enjoying remotely reading May's Book "The Ok Book" written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. In it, the author and illustrator celebrate the real skills and talents our students possess, encouraging, and empowering them to discover their own individual strengths and personalities! Whether "OK" personifies an 'OK climber', an 'OK lightning bug catcher', or an OK whatever there is to experience, in this book "OK is an OK place to be!" And being OK just may lead to the discovery of what makes one great!

        Shobha Neelamraju (pictured, reading on campus earlier this year), a parent reader this year and mom to 1st Grade twins Yash and Myra, says this about her experience as a Project Cornerstone reader:
        "Cornerstone is a fantastic initiative that helps aid in building a foundation for our children and future generations. I strongly believe in, and look forward to continue reading and nurturing our kids to encourage good behaviors."

As a principal, I am always proud of the many things our students, staff and community members are doing. I am especially pleased to hear that our own first graders,  Myra and Yash, are using their time while sheltered in place to thank their community members who are out there providing services to us. They believed that their thank you notes could bring smiles to these essential service workers in the most testing times for the humanity. They saw tears in the eyes of the mail lady and garbage truck driver when they handed over the cards. Let’s all remember that a thank you goes a long way and we need to continually support each other especially during trying times.
