Shout Outs
Thank You to our Room Parents!
Our room parents spent hours volunteering their time so our kids could have wonderful winter parties and fantastic first semesters. And thank you to the rest of the parents, family and friends who helped make this a special semester.
Thank You to FHES Families who Donated to Teacher Treat December!
A huge thank you to the FHES families who donated gift cards to local coffee shops for December’s Teacher Treat. It was a huge success! A hot cocoa bar - complete with homemade hot cocoa - a fabulous array of yummy toppings, and cute cups with Flash the Fox wearing a Santa hat all were donated by the Teacher Treat Committee and PTO board. Thank you to everyone who helped make this treat a wonderful success!! 

FHES faculty and staff were warmly welcomed to a room decorated like a winter wonderland with holiday music and a roaring “fireplace,” where they could make their custom hot cocoa treat, receive a Forest Hill tote bag, and select the gift card of their choice off the gift-card tree! What a special way to kick off everyone’s holiday break and show an abundance of love and appreciation for our Forest Hill family!
