Our Mission

Principal's Corner

Welcome Parents and Students,

It is almost time to start the 2013-14 school year! It is difficult to believe how fast the time has gone by. I hope you’ve had a refreshing and relaxing break.

It is my hope that every family is ready to start the new year on a positive note. The staff of Forest Heights has been working diligently to ensure that all students are moving forward academically. Our school’s focus on mathematics will be continued but we will work hard to make sure that our reading, science and social studies knowledge are up to par as well.

It is important that our students are encouraged to work as hard as they can in every situation. Parents, please continue to praise your children for working hard and helping them to see benefit of perseverance. We will continue to "Do our Personal Best everyday, everyway" as we work together for a great 2013-2014 school year.

--Dr. Frank Robinson
