Scent Free School: A reminder that we are a scent free school.  Please do not wear body sprays, perfumes, colognes, or creams that have a strong smell.  This can impact staff and students in the building who have allergies or reactions so please ensure students are not wearing a strong scent to school. We have had a number of students and staff who have been impacted by this lately. 

It’s Cold Outside! Please remind your student(s) to bring a coat to school.  We’ve had a number of older students choose not to bring a coat to school on really cold days.  This makes trying to hide inside the school a really attractive option which causes problems for staff and other students. Students go outside in sunshine, rain and snow unless the temperature falls below -25, or -27 with the windchill.  

Volleyball:  Congratulations to the Intermediate Girls Volleyball team on placing first at their Zones on Friday! The team played extremely well winning all sets. Good luck as they move onto Regionals on Tuesday! GO THUNDERBIRDS! Thank you to Mr Schreck, Mrs. Lees and Mr. Tuckett for volunteering their time to coach!

Basketball: Congratulations to the intermediate boy's basketball team for their success in their Zone tournament on Thursday. The boys will be moving on to the regional event next Tuesday. Good luck team! Thank you to Mrs. Blue for volunteering her time to coach!

Paul Davis presentation: School council will be funding a presentation for students and for parents by Paul Davis on social networking and online safety. We highly recommend this event for all parents, and especially parents of intermediate students.  Please join us at 6 pm at Terry Fox Public School to hear Paul Davis speak!  https://socialnetworkingsafety.net/

School Council Fundraising Request: Help support literacy for all students at Forest Hill Public School, especially (but not only) those who struggle to read.  Donations will be used to purchase literacy resources that are recommended by the School Council and that align with the Ontario Human Rights Commission's Right to Read report.


If you are interested in making an online donation, you will log into your School Cash Online account and click on the “Make a Donation” button to launch the donation portal.  You will then be able to choose your gift amount, select our school, and an initiative that you would like to support.  There is a specific Literacy option you can choose if you wish.  Donations received for the general Initiative will be allocated at the discretion of the principal based on the needs of the school.  Lastly, you will have the option to send a message to the school board.  Once you add it to your cart you can proceed to the cart and complete your transaction.  Tax receipts are issued for donations regardless of denomination, upon completion of transaction.  We thank you in advance for your support of our school!



Inclement weather reminder: If buses are cancelled, the school remains open for learning.  Athletics practices and games are cancelled, and the hot lunch program is also cancelled on inclement weather days.
