Class T-Shirts

It’s tradition at Forest Road School for sixth graders to wear a special class t-shirt to the end-of-the-year party and on the last day of school. More info coming soon!


There will be a class slideshow, celebrating all the students, shared at the end-of-the-year party.

We need your help to make sure every sixth grader is represented in the slideshow.  We would appreciate it if every family sends a baby or early photo of your sixth grader to include in the slideshow.

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