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.

Using Our Words

What is happening with TOOLBOX?

Three children on a play structure.

 

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.
