Parents As Leaders (PALs)

Parent involvement is invited, encouraged and expected at Forest Hills since research has demonstrated that this is an important factor in student success and achievement.  There are many opportunities for involvement, including:

• lunchroom helpers
• classroom assistants
• buildings and grounds beautification
• auction planning and committees
• PTA membership
• field trip chaperones
• coaching, driving, and officiating in sports program
• library helpers
• office assistants
• grandpas support group

Parents agree to serve a minimum of 25 hours per family in the course of the school year or pay $10 per hour not served to the school at the end of the year.  Since the school and the student are the beneficiaries, parents are encouraged to give of their time rather than their money.
