SuperConference Students

SuperConference Students from the Forest Hills School District attended the 24 th annual “SuperConference” for student leaders on Thursday, May 4, 2017, at Mount Aloysius College. The conference provided student leaders from middle and high schools in the county an opportunity to enhance leadership traits, develop leadership skills, and foster pride and spirit in their schools. At the conference, students had the opportunity to attend multiple workshops on various topics on finance, diversity, chasing dreams, and many more. Each workshop and speaker reinforced the importance of leadership within our schools and how leadership ideas and traits can translate into their academic and personal futures. Only two students from each grade, 7 th through 11th grades, were eligible to attend the conference. Based upon teacher recommendations, the students were selected to attend the “SuperConference”. The student leaders are the pride of our school and we would once again like to congratulate them on this honor. (Students delegates: Natalya Teno, Payton McGough, Carley McGough, Eva Spangler, Courtney Roxby, Mackenzie Toth, Alexis Miller, Luke Docherty, Griffin Christ, and Jason Wissinger.) Math-a-Thon at Forest Hills Junior High The Math-a-Thon is a charity that was started by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to fund their research and fund the pediatric hospital. Students participate in the fundraiser for St. Jude’s by completing a booklet of math problems and getting sponsors. Each year, the junior high math department uses this fundraiser for St. Jude’s as an optional part of their fourth marking period bonus. The booklet, called the Funbook, is filled with math curriculum according to the student participant’s grade. The curriculum in the Funbook is for a great cause, and it helps students prepare for standardized tests at the end of the year, which includes the PSSA and the Keystone Exams. This year, students, along with a donation from student council, sent $583 to aid in St. Jude’s cause of beating pediatric cancer. Awesome!!! Thank you to all the students and families that participated and aided St. Jude’s in this worthy cause. Students that participated in our fundraising event: Sierra Plummer, Travis Neff, Blaze Maher, Colton Fiffick, Anna Wingard, Eric Schmidt, Ashton Cobaugh, Thomas Hockensmith, Kelsey Josephson, Jon Chaney, and Brevin Michuk. 16

Principal’s Corner ~ Mr. Lucas Jacobs ~ ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ~ As we reflect on the 2016-17 school year, please join the Forest Hills Elementary staff and me in acknowledging and celebrating the many exciting learning experiences and educational opportunities that have taken place for our students at Forest Hills Elementary. Together we have planned and executed best teaching practices and held students to high standards and expectations. I want to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation to the teachers, staff, students, and families for their dedication and efforts this year. When students leave school in May, they are leaving with a wealth of knowledge, skills, and abilities that comes from daily learning and practice. This summer, I encourage you to set aside time to read with your children. We must work together to prevent the “summer slide.” The summer slide refers to the summer months when students “forget” what they have learned in school. Many students are at risk for summer reading loss. In fact, students can lose up to two months of academic growth when reading is ignored over the summer. Summer setback is real, and it is important for parents to encourage summer reading. Reading over the summer will assist in preventing the summer slide and help students continue to grow academically. Summer is a very special time for children and is the source of many happy memories. On behalf of the faculty and staff of Forest Hills Elementary School, we hope that you and your children enjoy many opportunities to have fun as a family in the weeks ahead. It has been an honor to be the principal of Forest Hills Elementary School. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support of our elementary students. I am thankful to have the opportunity to serve as the Forest Hills School District Director of Education. I look forward to working with all faculty, support staff, and administration while working collaboratively with the board of directors and district stakeholders. It is my hope to have a continued partnership devoted to the success of our students. Have a wonderful and safe summer! Student Council Members Place Flags At Mt. Hope Cemetery The fifth and sixth grade Student Council Members had the privilege of assisting the St. Michael VFW with Memorial Day preparations this year. On Tuesday, May 23, 2017 the students traveled with the veterans to the Mt. Hope Cemetery and helped place 270 flags on the graves of brave men and women who have served our country. Along with placing the flags, the students had the opportunity to talk with the veterans and learn about their experience during their time of service. The students really enjoyed finding the oldest grave markers for the men who served during the Civil War. 17
