There will be a slideshow shared at the end-of-the-year party, class breakfast, and possibly the all-school assembly.

We need your help to make sure every sixth grader is represented in the slideshow.  We would appreciate it if every family can send a baby or early photo of your 6th grader to include in the slideshow.  (A baby photo would be great, but if a baby photo isn’t available, then any photo from before this year will work.)

We also need digital candid photos of your student at school and with Forest Road friends throughout their years at Forest Road.

There are two ways to submit photos:


Send photos to the main office: If you only have a hard copy available, please send it in with your student to the school office, clearly labeled with their name and homeroom and your contact information so we can scan and return it to you.)

Parents are invited to view the slideshow during the last 30 minutes of the end-of-the-year party on May 19, and at the class breakfast on the last day of school, June 8.

Class T-Shirts

Students should wear their 6th Grade class shirts to the end-of-the-year party and the last day of school.  There are two ways to order:

Online with credit card: Order a shirt here by April 14, 2o23.

Paper with cash or check: Print the ORDER FORM and return it with payment to the main office by April 14, 2023.

Note: Students who receive free or reduced lunches at school will be provided with a t-shirt, but should still fill out the paper order form and return it to the office by the deadline.
