Principal’s Message
With only two months left of school, we know that this is a very busy time of year for students and schools as we have many wonderful events planned at our school, whilealso having Provincial Achievement Exams coming up in the next two months. Stu-dents and staff are working diligently to ensure that we have a successful transitioninto the next school year.On May 2, 3rd Street Beat will be joining us again to work with the students and dosome hip hop dancing. The kids will have the opportunity to showcase their moveson Friday, May 6 at 1pm, followed by a performance from the group. We are reallylooking forward to hosting this event again and hope you can join us. Please knowthat we have busses coming into the school during this time, so all parking regula-tions still apply. Please ensure that no cars are parked in the middle of the street or inthe bus lanes. We appreciate your cooperation to ensure that our students that doleave at different times can still get out safely.Continuing on with parking, please ensure that unless you have a permit or have spo-ken directly with school administration, that we leave the designated parking areasopen. I know that the parking lot is a really busy place in the morning, which is allthe more reason that we need to proceed with extra caution. The parking lot area has been a lot safer thanks to the work of the entire Forest Green community. Thanks for that!I would like to personally invite all parent volunteers to join us on May 31st, at 10amat Forest Green School for our annual Volunteer Tea. We really appreciate all of thewonderful things that our volunteers do and this is just one of the ways we can showour appreciation. We looking forward to seeing you on this day. To help with our  planning please let Mrs. Buchaski know if you are able to attend.I wish all of you a fantastic May and hope to see more sunshine coming our way!
 Sincerely,George Couros Principal, Forest Green School/Connections for Learning
