About Our School

Welcome Message




Welcome to the Forest Avenue School website!  Please take a look at the different portions of our site and enjoy.  Check back periodically for new links and photos of some of the exciting activities enjoyed by the students of Forest Avenue School.

Research shows that parental involvement in their children’s education is a strong component of a successful school experience.  Please join us at our evening academic activities such as music concerts, the Science Fair, Gym Night, and the Art Show.  Also join us at the many PTA sponsored events such as the Fall Family Festival, the Holiday Gathering, Family Night, and the Family Picnic.  We have a wonderful, active PTA.  There are many opportunities to volunteer to help at events which occur during school hours as well as evening events.

Communication is another important key to your child’s success.  Please let your child’s teacher know of any concerns that you may have.  Our third, fourth, and fifth grade students should be using their organizers daily to record homework assignments and information about upcoming tests.  Sometimes, teachers use the organizer to write short notes to parents.  Please remember to check your child’s organizer daily.  Feel free to contact me with any other concerns that you may have.  Together we can create a positive learning environment for your child.

Character Education is an important part of our school environment.  Throughout the school year, we focus on character traits of respect, responsibility, citizenship, trustworthiness, fairness, and caring.  Please ask your child about these traits and look for additional information throughout the school year about building and classroom projects or events involving Character Education.

We look forward to seeing you at many of our wonderful events throughout the school year!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Patricia Acocella
Principal
