Welcome, Forest Knolls Families! 

The Forest Knolls PTA is excited about the 2017-2018 school year and we hope you are too!  A great way to get involved and support your child is to become a member of the PTA.  We encourage you to join our vibrant and growing PTA community, and help support the Forest Knolls "Mustangs"! 

Here's what's up at Forest Knolls . . . 

Book Swap - February 26 - March 2nd (Main Entrance of the School)

The annual FKES book swap is next week before school, at lunch and after school.

Tuesday-Thursday: Kids redeem receipts and swap books 'one-for-one'.
Friday: One book for all students, regardless of whether they've donated
 
*Please help by sending in books your kids no longer need, and by volunteering to staff the table in the main entrance of the school. More information is at the link below.

African American Heritage Month Committee
In lieu of an evening event this year, the African American Heritage Month Committee has elected to donate books and other educational materials to the school in support of the February 23rd African American Heritage Literature Read-In and classroom libraries. If you are interested in helping plan an African American Heritage Night for the 2018-2019 school year, please let any PTA board member know.  We welcome all volunteers!

Award-Winning Children's Author to visit FKES! - Tuesday, March 6th, 7-8:30pm (All-Purpose Room)
