Forest of Reading

Forest of Reading has started at FH! Students from JK all the way through to grade 8 will be able to borrow books at their level and read in order to possibly attend the Forest of Reading Festival of Trees in May. Students have been able to start borrowing books this week. This year Silver Birch readers will have the opportunity to build a team and enter our Battle of the Books competition. More information will come as we get deeper into the program! We have a variety of fiction and non-fiction in both English and French languages to share this year. We have many teachers who have been kind enough to preview the books in order to allow students to engage in conversations about these texts with them. If you have any questions about the program, look to the bulletin board in the library or outside of the library as well as asking Miss Whitworth any questions you may have.

FOREST HILL JR & SR PUBLIC SCHOOL

Forest Hill Jr. & Sr. Public School (JK-8) is a community school located in the Forest Hill neighbourhood which, prior to 1967, was part of the old Forest Hill Village. The school consists of two separate buildings, one of which was built in 1923, the other in 1938. Forest Hill has the unique features of period architecture, a 470-seat auditorium with a proper stage, and spacious grounds. The grounds include two separate baseball diamonds, soccer fields and a full running track.



Forest Hill also houses Dunloe Children's Centre. Over one hundred children attend the Centre. Before and after school care is also available subject to numbers and space. Many in-district families with children previously in parochial and private schools have enrolled their children in our school for 2016-2017. Forest Hill Public School is committed to providing a learning environment that prepares students for successful living in an increasingly pluralistic and changing world. We balance our emphases on academics, athletics, arts, and the environment as well as enriched opportunities for the exercise of responsible citizenship. This broad co-curriculum gives depth and variety to student life.
