Hello Forest Park families,

We would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who made our 23-24 basketball season a success, our final game of the season will be on 2/28/24 at Patterson School.  

We had some challenges along the way, but with the assistance of some amazing VOLUNTEERS our 4th-5th graders were able to have their season as planned.  It truly does take a village to make a difference in the lives of our students. Thank you to everyone who made the season possible- coaches, referees, scorekeepers, clock handlers, custodians and of course our students and their families.


(weather permitting)


On January 29, 2024 the district office e-mailed home the annual District Reservation Form to all current students via Informed K12. This form serves two purposes. It tells the school where you intend your child to go to school for 2024-2025 and fulfills the District’s mandated annual residency verification. The deadline to return reservation forms was Friday, February 23, 2024. We will not be handing out the forms in the office; you must respond to the email. If you do not complete this form, your child will not be placed on a class list for next fall. If you have moved please be sure to provide the office with new residency documentation so that we may update our records.

   Driving Reminders from the City of Fremont

Dear Forest Park Families,
During the week of March 18-22, students will be taking part in Say Something Week. We will be discussing how to recognize warning signs and threats of potential violence and the importance of telling a trusted adult. It can be hard for adults to know how the children in their lives are feeling. Today, many teens and adolescents turn to online channels to express themselves, their thoughts and hopes, and anxieties and personal feelings. Some even go as far as hinting they want to hurt themselves or someone else. Their friends and peers are the eyes and ears of a school community and may observe these communications but not always understand or know what to do with that information.
Say Something teaches all of this. The 30-minute training will talk through the 3 steps-1) Look for warning signs and threats, 2) Act immediately, take it seriously; 3) Say Something to a trusted adult.
We encourage you to talk to your children how important it is to Say Something and encourage them to share what they are learning. Not only will this conversation help you to recognize any signs in your own student’s expressions, but it also demonstrates to them that you take this subject seriously and can be one of the trusted adults they turn to if they suspect someone may need help.
Schools are meant to be safe places. Training like Say Something week will help equip our young people to do their part to keep our school community safe. For more information, you can visit or reach out to the School Counselor Ms. Kim.
