Toonies for Terry Spaghetti Eating Challengehttp://for.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/26Toonies 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 Orchestrahttp://for.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/25Forest 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>
Kiss 'n' Ride & Parking Lot Renos!http://for.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/21Kiss '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>
