The health of your child is important to us. The MSD of Lawrence Township recognizes that good health is essential to effective learning. Each of our schools is staffed with a registered nurse equipped to meet the needs of our students.
Use AR BookFinder to create customized AR quiz lists for your child! Amy Beverland has access to all of the 100,000+ quizzes that are listed in AR Bookfinder. New quizzes are added weekly. We have over 7,000 AR titles in the library. You may find other books at the public library, bookstores or in your own home collection. You can easily track your child's progress toward his/her goals on AR Home Connect. You can enter your e-mail address and be notified each time your child takes a quiz or passes a level of Math Facts in a Flash.

ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. We encourage parents to access their accounts so they can download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.

The Forest Glen Parent Faculty Organization (PFO) is just that, a group of Forest Glen parents and faculty working together. The PFO is the link between you – Forest Glen Families – and the Forest Glen staff.
- Provide communication and services to parents – through tools such as newsletters and a school directory
- Raise money for teachers and faculty to help bridge the gap in state and federal funding–offering spring and fall grants, training and supplies.
- Support our children – with curriculum enrichment and library books
- Build community through social events – such as the Fiesta del Otoño, skating parties, & a talent show.
The PFO supports these goals with a $30,000 annual budget.
How do we spend your money?
- 73% back to our children’s classrooms, teachers, and clubs
- 12% to support our non-teaching staff
- 9% for hospitality and festival events - parent breakfasts, Hispanic Festival
- 2% for outreach in our Forest Glen community
- 4% for operating costs
HOW DOES THE PFO RAISE MONEY?
The PFO has several fundraisers throughout the year. With this information, you can choose how you want to support the efforts of the PFO.
- Non-Project Fundraiser – Rather than having your child participate in traditional school fundraisers,you can make a donation to the PFO. A letter explaining this program goes home with your child in September, and more information can be found by contacting our PFO treasurer.
- Spell–a-bration – Students raise money and enhance their spelling skills simultaneously.
- Kids Kreations – Artwork created in Art class can be transferred to mugs, mouse pads or even aprons. Very popular and delivered in time for Christmas gifts!
- Silent Fundraisers – Clip and send in Box Tops, which are worth $0.10 each! FG also participates in Terracycle’s fundraising program where we give them our trash and they give us cash.
- Fiesta del Otoño – Our largest fundraiser is a community/family event. Always a great time and the biggest fundraiser of the year.
After the first two weeks of school, we welcome your visit to your child's classroom. Pre-arranged classroom visits by parents are encouraged and welcomed.
We also welcome parents to come and eat lunch with their student. Parents may either eat hot lunch from the cafeteria or bring a sack lunch from home. Please do not bring in food from a restaurant for you and your child. All visitors should sign in at the office and wear a guest or volunteer badge.
For your child's safety and education, we cannot allow parents to just walk into the classroom unexpectedly. Thank you for your support in providing a safe environment for our children.
All visitors to school buildings are required to complete a SafeSolutions background check upon entry.
- All visitors must report to the school office to provide identification, sign in, and receive a visitor’s badge before entering the school.
- Visitors should not park in the bus lanes. Visitors are welcome for lunch, but a reservation must be made by 9 a.m. on the morning of the visit.
- Although classroom visits are encouraged, mutually agreed upon times must be coordinated between the teacher and the visitor.
