Dear Forestville Families,
We’d like to take a moment to thank all of you for your continued support and partnership during the 2019-2020 school year. As we celebrate the end of another school year, we continue to value the creativity, collaboration, flexibility and perseverance demonstrated by our students, staff, parents and community members this year.
This school year has presented us with many changes and transitions as we have moved from physical classrooms to virtual ones. Together we learned, grew and stayed connected; creating different kinds of special memories along the way. It’s really hard to believe that it’s already June. We now find ourselves struggling, as we do every year but even more so this year, to say our farewells. We are so proud of the determination and hard work that the amazing students and staff of Forestville have shown, in their classrooms here at school and in their virtual classrooms at home. We celebrate their achievements, and we will certainly miss seeing them every day, whether here at school or virtually.
Please use the following link, to view the end of the year message to students:
Once again, if there is anything that we can do to support you or your family over the summer break, please do not hesitate to reach out, we are here for you.
Tony Washington, Principal Mari Arbach, Assistant Principal
Summer Continuity of Learning Resources and Sign-Up
FCPS school buildings will remain closed through the end of July. Therefore, we will continue to provide recommended distance learning opportunities for students throughout the summer. Your students will have access to skill practice through the iReady digital lessons through the FCPS public Universal Screener website. Students will need to enter their FCPS login credentials to access these resources. These digital activities will be available until Friday, July 31st.
Additionally, students currently in grades K-6 will receive both a Mathematics and a Language Arts Essentials Summer Practice Book in the mail by the end of June. Digital versions of the books will also be posted on the Continuity of Learning Blackboard page. These books will provide recommended practice activities for students to review essential content from the 2019-2020 school year; they are not intended to preview content from next year’s grade level but rather reinforce essential learning from this past year.
As students access these activities from June 29 to July 31, they will have the opportunity to attend one virtual office hour each week with one of our own outstanding staff members. The schedule is as follows:
Kindergarten: Ms. Carleigh Johnson, Tuesday 9:00am-10am
Grade 1: Ms. Carleigh Johnson, Tuesday 10:00am-11:00am
Grade 2: Mr. Patrick Mills, Thursday 9:00am-10:00am
Grade 3: Mr. Patrick Mills, Thursday 10:00am-11:00am
Grade 4: Ms. Margaret Zuerner, Wednesday, 10:00am-11:00am
Grade 5: Mr. Adriel Ignacio, Wednesday, 11:00am-12:00pm
Grade 6: Ms. Alysha Akbar, Tuesday, 10:00-11:00am
Special Education: Ms. Letitia Lock, Tuesday, 11:00am-12:00pm
English Language Development: Ms. Karen Robinson, Thursday, 10:00am-11:00am
To register your student for office hours and receive a secure link, please complete this sign up for CONTINUTY OF LEARNING. Once registered, your child will receive log-in information via their FCPS Google email address prior to the first session. Please fill out this form by June 24th.
