Kiss 'n' Ride & Parking Lot Renos! 'n' Ride & Parking Lot Renos!<p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-4">Over the summer our parking lot was reconfigured: the buses will now be loading and offloading in front of the school, and the kiss n’ ride ENTRANCE (only) has moved to the west side of the building near the new parking area. The west side of the building is the side near Doran Road and 27, the primary tarmac, and farthest from the baseball diamond. Parent volunteers will continue to operate our Kiss n’ Ride.</span></p><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-4">Parents/guardians are free to pick up and drop off their children by entering the west entrance of the lot, safely permitting their children to exit the vehicle on the passenger side only, onto the sidewalk or ‘no parking’ zone. Cars will exit from the middle exit, sharing the exit only area with the buses. Please note that all buses will be exiting the middle entrance to the lots as well: they will be making wide turns to get back onto Doran Road, so caution will be key.</span></p>

Toonies for Terry Spaghetti Eating Challenge for Terry Spaghetti Eating Challenge<p>​This week, Forest Hill celebrated the National School Run Day on Thursday, September 29. Before the day of the big event, Mme Adair coaxed several teachers into participating in the 2nd Spaghetti Eating Challenge. Students who brought in a toonie for Terry, got their name on a ticket. They place their ticket into the jar of the teacher they thought would win the challenge. Students were also drawn to serve a teacher the spaghetti. </p><p>There were some excellent spaghetti eating costumes, and we even had the Queen of Spaghetti (Mme McBride) join us for the festivities with cape, crown and entourage.  After the sauce hit the faces, Mrs. Stewart emerged victorious. She, along with 2 students lead the Kindies around the track for the first lap. </p><p>A fun time was had by all!</p>
Forest Hill Orchestra Hill Orchestra<p>​Last<span style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-family:calibri, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:16px;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;float:none;display:inline !important;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;background-color:#ffffff;"> week, students were given the opportunity to sign for for Forest Hill's first ever Orchestra. This is an ensemble for students in grades 5-8 requiring no musical experience (though a little experience is nice, too).  Interested students were to pick up an information package containing all the details and an instrumental music survey. These surveys are due to Mrs. Marcotte-Harrower or Mme. Dunstan no later than this Wednesday, the 21st of September.  We will have our first rehearsal on Wednesday, October 5th and every Wednesday thereafter until mid-May, there will also be rotation sectionals on Friday mornings which will amount to one every three weeks.  If you are interested, but did not pick up an info package, please see Mrs. Marcotte-Harrower ASAP to obtain one.  It won't be long before music fills these halls!</span></p>
Class Lists for September Lists for September<span class="ms-rteFontFace-5" id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-5">As many of you know, here at Forest Hill, it has been our recent practice to post class lists prior to our September opening. However, this practice is not in accordance with the current SCDSB policy, with respect to the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act. As a result, no class lists will be posted at Forest Hill prior to the first day of school.</span></p><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"> </p><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-5">On the first day of school in September, staff will be on the yard in grade groupings, by division. Primary grades, from kindergarten to 3, will be on the primary yard tarmac near the Kindergarten rooms. Junior grades, from grade 4 to 6, will be inside the track, and Intermediate grades 7 and 8 will be on the baseball diamond. English classes will be indicated with a letter E after them (for example 1E), French Immersion by an FI (for example 2FI) and Extended French by EFSL (for example 5 EFSL). Grade numbers will be posted on the respective yards: students should gather near that number, where a teacher will be waiting with their class list. After the bell rings, the teacher will read off their class list and will bring their class into the classroom as a group. In case of rain, primary students will be brought into the library, junior students will be brought into the gym, and intermediate students will be brought into the intermediate hallway. Class lists will be read out loud in those locations.</span></p><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-5">Our administrators (Mme Blom and Mme Murphy), teacher librarian (Mrs. Desormeaux), planning time teachers (Mrs. Morrow, Mrs. Blue, Mme Breg) and Special Education Resource Teachers (Mrs. Clements, Mrs. McColm) will all have master lists for any student who may need assistance.</span></p><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-5">Parents are reminded that they are to drop their children off on the boundary of the yard and are not to be on the yard after 8:55.</span></p><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"> </p><p style="color:#000000;text-transform:none;line-height:normal;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-size:medium;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;word-spacing:0px;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;"><span class="ms-rteFontFace-5">At the end of the first day, your child will bring home a letter with contact information for their teacher. Having worked through this process at previous schools, we are confident that it will go well here. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding with regards to this change in procedure.</span></p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-5" id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span>
