Forest Park Program

Forest Park's Classroom Program: 2014-2015

All children will work with the following specialists during their week:

  • Technology with a teacher specializing in technology: Mr. Poujade
  • Library with a Library Assistant: Deb Kerrigan
  • PE with a PE specialist: Mr. Huntley two times each week
  • Music with a Music Specialist: Ms. Kim

Note: Forest Park is able to provide this well rounded program because of the funds raised through the Forest Park Foundation.  Thank you to everyone that gives so generously to the Forest Park Foundation.  It's all about the kids! Without the Foundation Forest Park would lose: some or all of the following positions:  PE, Technology, Library, and Educational Assistants that work with K-5 teachers.  Thank you Forest Park Parents .

In addition Forest Park children raised substantial funds through Run for the Arts last spring.  Those funds are being used for artist in residents at each grade level and all-school assemblies that celebrate the arts, especially music.
