From Principal Lisa Newlyn


April Fool's to me!  #AprilFool's #PrincipalLife #YouGotMe 

Thanks to the young one for the laugh Monday night as I left campus for home  =)  No other shenanigans were afoot (that I could tell at least) on our return from Spring Break.  April is going to fly by with lots going on around FPE in the upcoming weeks.  Please make sure to check our Upcoming Events Calendar, below.  

Calendar Alert:  We have three makeup days (June 10-12) listed on the district calendar, days available to be used when needed. PPS will use two of those days to make up two snow days on June 10 and 11. Adding these two days at the end of the academic year enables us to restore instructional hours that were lost to weather in February.  

I want to thank our Friends of Forest Park Elementary for their commitment of $175.000 that will augment the FPE program for the 2019-2020 School Year.  Join me on April 18th @ 6:30pm for my Spring State of the School Address.  My presentation will focus on staffing allocations provided by PPS for the upcoming school year based on student enrollment projections.  At that time I will also share how your donations will be used to support student learning.  

Our next FPE Parent Info Night will be 4/24 with Dr. Scott Spencer at 6:30pm in the FPE library.  Dr. Spencer is a Pediatrician at Pediatric Associates of the NW.  His presentation is titled Responsible Media Use.  Join us!

Read on below for more news from our school and community partners.

Three Great Ways to Keep our Campus Safe for Kids:

1.  Come in and Sign In to get a Visitor's Badge whenever you're on campus.  Never walk directly to a classroom or school space without a Visitor Badge.  See someone without a Visitor Badge?  Welcome them to the office for help.

2.  Keep our track and field for students only during the school day.  No neighbors and no dogs between 8am - 2:15pm.

3.  Late to school?  Park and walk to sign your child in for the day.  Absent?  Call our attendance line: (503) 916-5400.

Personal Device Use at FPE

At FPE, we seek to partner with parents to limit students' recreational screen time. Our philosophy is that personal electronic device use is entertaining and even educational.  As partners in teaching safe and appropriate use, we have guidelines we actively enforce. During class time, Ready to Learn guidelines determine their use, which is only academic. Our school guidelines follow district policy and can be found at this website:  FPE is not responsible for the loss, theft or damage to students’ personal electronic device/s. 

Specific prohibited devices include: Apple Watches, Gizmo Gadgets, iPhones, Cell Phones, and any other device that can make a call , text, or that can listen in to classroom instruction.

Have questions?  Contact Principal Newlyn

During Class Time

  1. Use devices only for academic purposes with teacher permission

  2. Stay completely off social media, texting and other personal uses

  3. Keep device off and out of sight unless on for academic purposes

  4. Leave device in class or other assigned area if leaving the classroom

  5. Use only school computers during class time

  6. Go to the office with permission to text or call a parent/guardian

  7. Give device to school staff when requested
