We are in the home stretch of the school year. It is in March that our students really start reviewing and practicing for the MAP testing that takes place late in April. It is extremely important that our students are here each and every day ready to work hard down the stretch.    

Spring is also a time when we experience our most rainfall. I want to remind everyone that our buses will not cross through any high water. We will try to send out notification when a bus is unable to make it to certain parts of their route due to high water, but we sometimes don’t know that until the bus pulls up to the crossing. If you know that the bus must pass a low water crossing to get to your pick-up or drop off location, please help us out by paying attention to the water level at those locations and contact your bus driver in the event an alternative pick-up or drop off is necessary.

 I would like for parents to remind their children about behavior expectations at school.  Encourage them to pay attention in class, to keep their hands to themselves at school and on the bus, and absolutely no horseplay.  In addition, please remind them that field trips are a privilege and can be taken away if they do not behave and do their best at school.  Your help with this would be greatly appreciated.  Your child’s education is always our top priority here at Green Forest, and we know it’s your top priority as well.  Thanks for your help in this matter and keep in close touch with your child’s teacher on their progress.

Remember, one of the most important things you can do for your child’s education is to make reading important at home. Spend time reading with your student as often as you can. Students are able to check out books from our library on a regular basis. Making sure that they are reading these each night at home is a great way to help your student be successful in school.

Don’t forget to download our app to receive instant notifications from the school and the TeacherEase app to track your students grades, attendance, and lunch account balance. Lunch account balances will transfer over to next school year if there is a remaining credit at the end of the year.

Thank you again for all your support and for making this year such a great year. It is a great day to be a Mustang.
