I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacation. The summer months bring a well-deserved break for our students and staff. However, it’s important to always be preparing for what lies ahead. The summer can be a great time for recharging your batteries to gear up for the next school year. I would encourage all students to take advantage of our summer library hours. All students should invest the time to read at least one book over the summer months. Some time devoted to college and career planning would also be beneficial. Students should consider summer employment, job shadowing, or college visits. All of these options can help students decide where their interests lie and assist them in scheduling classes throughout their high school careers. As always, we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Please also visit our website for valuable information including the link for the “High School Years” newsletter under the Administration link within the Our School tab of the High School homepage. We continue to strive to provide a quality education so our students develop into life-long learners and understand their importance in a democratic society. Thank you for continued support and assistance towards this end. 10

The Forest Hills FBLA had a very successful year at Regional and State Competition. Our FBLA also enjoyed the use of the new Junior-Senior High School Concession Stand. Each member is looking forward to a new year in the new building. We plan to put our business skills to good use next year. As an added accomplishment, Nathan Long placed in Business Calculations; and best of all Luke Helsel placed at State FBLA in Help Desk. Luke will be attending the National Competition in Anaheim, California. Good Luck to all our senior members and Luke at the NLC. Watch for us next school year as we enjoy the new building! FBLA The FBLA enjoyed a two-day trip to Hersheypark at the end of the school year. A wing feast at Arrogas highlighted our trip. Students also enjoyed the park rides, and a getaway at the Comfort Suites in Hummelstown. Funds for the trip came from the concession stand and candy sales. Thanks to the community support we received, FBLA is able to plan great activities. High School Music The High School Band, Girls Quartet, and Chorus presented their annual Spring Concert on May 15 th . This year’s concert was very well attended by family and friends. The art department decorated the lobby and hallways with some of our students’ best work. On May 19, 2017 we debuted the first annual Small Ensemble concert featuring Jazz Band, and the Boys Ensemble. This concert showcased our students in band and chorus, from 7 th through 12 th grade, in small groups of 2 to 4 students. They worked through the semester on their music and presented a very diverse selection of songs. The Jazz Band and High School Boys Ensemble Chorus also performed at the Elementary Art Show on May 11. High School Chorus gave additional performances this spring at Trinity Lutheran in Sidman and at an adjudication at Indi- District ana University of Pennsylvania, where they received excellent rating remarks from the judges. 11
