Toolbox Social Emotional Program

Forest Hill will continue this school year with the Toolbox Program.

Forest Hill is pleased to announce a new program we are introducing to all students this year. TOOLBOX is a research-based, community-tested Kindergarten through sixth grade social and emotional learning (SEL) program that strengthens children’s innate capacity for resilience, self-mastery and empathy for others through its curricula, methods, and practices.This program will directly align with our Profile of a Graduate focus this year. Students will learn skills to increase their understanding of Empathy, Collaboration and Self Direction.  Please check out this 2 minute video about the program. 

Welcome Back BBQ

Please join our students for our annual welcome back bbq lunch.

Please join us for our annual Welcome Back BBQ on Friday, September 13th. The BBQ will happen during the regular lunch period. To participate, just let your child's teacher know you are eating hot lunch on the day of the BBQ. The BBQ will take the place of the normal hot lunch menu. There is no extra charge in the cost of the BBQ lunch for our students! Each adult meal will cost $4.00. 

Volunteers Needed

We need your help! Parent volunteers are vital to our school's success.

Please see the following document for a list of open volunteer positions.

School Attendance

Is your family taking a vacation during the school year?

If you will be going on vacation, try to plan them on school holidays. If you not able to, and will be gone 5 days or longer, please come into the office and inquire about an Independent Study Agreement.

Please notify the office every day that your child is absent from school.  To report an absence, call 408-341-7132 for the 24 hr. attendance line.

If you have seen a medical professional, please bring us a doctor's note to have your child's absence medically verified.

Your student is allowed 10 days of parent verified absence due to an illness for the school year. After the 10 days, you will need to bring in a doctor's note to clear the absences. 

Vacations are not excused absences. Vacation and absences other than illness are considered unexcused and will generate truancy letters.
