A Message from Principal Karen Aspen:
Welcome to Forest Lakes Elementary. As the Principal of FLE, I look forward to working with you as we strive to provide a quality education for all of our students. Your interest, support, involvement, and parental guidance will never be more important than they are in these early years of your child's education. By becoming a school volunteer, joining the PTA, attending school functions, reading to your child and supervising your child's work, you can take an active part in your child's early educational experiences. Working together, we can best meet the needs of our children.
