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.

We continue to teach the 12 tools using the TOOLBOX curriculum. These tools  enable us to provide the common language, strategies and practices to strengthen our students cognitive/academic functions and the physical, emotional and social development needed. 

The last few weeks, our teachers have been focusing on “Using our Words” tool. This tool focuses on words and their power–finding the right words, and then using them in the right way, at the right time, and for the right reasons. In order to have healthy relationships, we must be able to express our own thoughts and feelings, and be willing to invite others to do the same. Feel free to view the grades K-3 and/or 4-6 parent letters, that also provides a home activity.

Forest Hill adopted the TOOLBOX curriculum a couple of years ago. This curriculum provides the building blocks for supporting Whole Child development. The 12 tools provide common language, strategies, and practices to strengthen cognitive/academic functions and the physical, emotional, and social development needed for lifelong health and wellness. 


For the next couple of weeks, our teachers will be focusing on the Personal Space Tool. The goal is for students to learn that they have the right to their space and so do others. Noticing the physical space around us helps us see our own needs and also how we may be impacting others. In addition, this Tool encompasses intelligence through awareness of our body wisdom: body language, sensations, gestures, position, posture, voice tone quality and volume. Feel free to view the  grades K-3 and/or 4-6 parent letters, that also provides a home activity.
