Jump Rope for Heart
Dear Forest Glen Elementary,
On behalf of the American Heart Association and the millions of Americans we serve, thank you very much for your school's donation of $12,537.00. Families and schools are critical links in providing the foundation for cardiovascular wellness in our country. By holding this event at your school each year, you raise awareness about heart-healthy living. And you help us fund more lifesaving scientific research and critically needed education efforts. Thank you.
Almost every family in America is touched by heart disease or stroke, and your school's contribution will significantly impact our fight against these devastating illnesses.
We hope that your entire school community found this lifesaving effort rewarding and enjoyable. You are touching so many lives — and life is why we exist as an organization. Your help and support are greatly appreciated, and we look forward to partnering again with you next year!
Chief Executive Officer, American Heart Association

Importance of School Attendance!
If your child will be absent due to an appointment, it is recommended that you attain an excuse from your provider for the date and time of the visit and return the excuse to the school office. This will ensure that the absence is noted as an excused absence or tardy. Appointment cards will NOT be accepted as an excuse.
Call to report your child's daily absence by calling the school's attendance line at 662-7990.
Report your child's absence online here: http://forestglenhssd.weebly.com/electronic-absence-form.html
Monitor your child’s tardies and absences through the district website: http://powerschool.hssd.k12.wi.us/public/
Click here for more information about the importance of attendance from the State Superintendent's office.

Please reply to this email with participant names and t-shirt sizes (participants that have already registered please disregard J).
Because this event will now occur the day before Mother’s Day, we are adding a bonus prize drawing for the perfect Mother’s Day gift-a $60 therapeutic massage gift certificate and a wine & cheese cutlery set!!

School Board Connection
On April 3, 2018, the communities of Howard and Suamico approved the operational referendum, placed on the ballot by the Board of Education, by a 58.6% to 41.4% margin.
Thank you to residents who attended listening sessions, asked questions, and voted. Your engagement demonstrates our communities’ interest and dedication to our students, staff and schools.
The results represent a vote of confidence in the vision for the school district and will allow us to address critical needs, including reducing class size, enhancing teacher compensation, and maintaining facilities. We will continue to give regular updates on the referendum.
If you have any questions for the Board of Education, please reach out to your school board member.
