Boosterthon Fun Run

We had a blast at our Boosterthon Fun Run and what a perfect day it turned out to be!. The weather was gorgeous and a great time was had by all. If we are able to meet our goal of $40,000, Dr. Brooks has agreed to dress up like an Alabama fan. I hope we get to see that! Here are a few highlights from today…

Pizza Party!

Mrs. Brock’s 2nd grade class was one of the classes with the highest attendance rate at our “Rockin in the Forest” Back to School Bash. Her students earned a pizza party for their participation. At the end of her party, her class treated myself and Dr. Brooks to a song written by Mrs. Brock. Take a listen…aren’t they all amazing little singers?!

The Sound Song

Readers are Leaders

Reading is essential for a child to succeed. At Forest Oaks, read alouds are practiced at every grade level-from kindergarten through 5th grade.
Read alouds serve many instructional purposes—they motivate, encourage, excite, build background, develop comprehension, assist children in making connections, and serve as a model of what fluent reading sounds like.
During a read aloud, our teachers create an environment where our students are actively engaged in a risk-free learning environment. They are provided with the freedom to wonder, question, and enjoy material beyond their reading abilities.
