Forestlawn Elementary News Forestlawn School Day: 8:35AM-3:20PM
 The  Scholastic Book Fair will be at our school the week of May 22nd during Library connect time. 

Our Book Fair times are:
Monday, May 22nd-Friday, May 26th ... 2:35-3:15

Thank you in advance for helping out at the Book Fair and making this fun event possible for the students!
For the remainder of the year we will be doing something a little different with our Caught Being Good Ticket program. The yellow tickets have been replaced with blue and pink tickets. Our awesome PTO has donated 2 bicycles for us to give away to 2 of our students. Students will be earning the blue/pink tickets for doing things above what is expected of them. They will then put their name on the ticket and deposit it in the drawing box. Each day we will hold a drawing for some smaller prizes(pencils, erasers, bookmarks). The daily tickets will be put back into the box for the bicycle drawing that will be held on June 6th during field day.
Good Luck Everyone!

Exciting News About All-Day Kindergarten

We are excited to announce all-day kindergarten will be open to all students next year. All-day kindergarten has been in such high demand that in the past we have had to deny entrance for some students. Therefore, we have added these extra seats to accommodate our children and parents. Most importantly, it gives our children twice the exposure to reading, language arts, and math skills which will help them for their lifetime. We hope that you will take advantage of this added opportunity.

Kindergarten registration for children who are 5 years old by August 1st will be April 5th and 6th at Knollwood Elementary. Hours are 9:00-11:00 and 1:00-3:00 on both days and Wednesday evening April 5th from 6:00-8:00. Cost will continue to be $2,000.00 and is payable monthly with a $200 deposit due by May 31st. Fee waivers are available for families who qualify. If you have any questions,

Dealing with Preschool Behavior in Public
Please see the "Read More" link for more information about this program.  
If a 2 hour delay is called for our school, it means that the student start time will be 10:35AM.  Buses will still be running, but 2 hours later.  For instance, if you bus usually comes at 8:00, with a 2 hour delay it will be at your bus stop at 10:00.  Dismissal time will be the same at 3:20PM. Please have a plan in place so you are prepared when a 2 hour delay is called.  Breakfast is not served when we have a 2 hour delay. 
I.D. Tags
At the beginning of the school year each child will receive 3 numbered tags. To help dismissal run more smoothly, please attach the numbered key ring to your child’s book bag. The key ring is to stay on the book bag all year. Also, please attach the other two numbered tags to your car keys etc….this is our way to identify you and your child at dismissal. If your child is a walker or bus rider, please attach the key ring to their book bag as well, just in case they are a car rider throughout the year. All parents will show their numbered key ring  to the staff member at the door and they will find the child with the matching number. Safety is IMPORTANT and I want to make sure all of our students at Forestlawn are safe.  
There is a procedure for parents visiting during the school day at Knollwood and Forestlawn this year.  When a parent wants to visit their child's classroom during the day, the parent will have to either call or email the teacher to set up an appointment.  Frequent distractions interrupt the educational process of learning for all the students and it is often hard to get all the students back on the learning track.  Thank you for helping us keep the learning environment a productive one.

Walkers and bike riders will be dismissed out the East doors of the building. Our crossing guard will be checking tag numbers for any parent that wishes to walk with their child. She will cross students needing to cross Forestlawn Ave. and walk the other students down to Lake Breeze Rd. and cross them.  All car riders will be dismissed out the front doors. THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE FOYER AREA OF THE SCHOOL . All parents will show their numbered key ring to the staff member at the door and they will find the child with the matching number. Please help us make this process be as smooth as possible. If you have forgotten your numbered key ring, we ask that you wait until the end of dismissal to identify your child in the office with ID. Thank you for your continuous support. If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please call the office at 949-4238.
