Welcome & Announcements

100% Student Success

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.

Boosterthon Fun Run

posted Oct 17, 2014, 7:58 AM by 1331 Forest Lakes ES   [ updated Oct 17, 2014, 8:38 AM ]

2014-15 Fundraiser!

                        We’re raising funds for Technology!      

                  

The Boosterthon Fun Run program is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales that raises much-needed funds for our school and over 1400 others across America. The Boosterthon program also promotes
three specific values during the fun-filled experience: 
Fitness, Leadership, and Character.

This year’s character theme is ROCK’N TOWN LIVE, a music festival theme all about COMMUNITY!


Students will learn five ways to make their community rock where they live and play.

Great Communities…Plug In To Serve, Amplify Others, Listen For Feedback, Play Hard, and Thank Your Crowd

Boosterthon Fun Run Basics

The 9-day program will kick off with a 30-minute school-wide Pep Rally on Wednesday, October 22  and conclude on Friday, October 31 with the Boosterthon Fun Run event. Students will be getting pledges toward the number of laps they will run at the Boosterthon Fun Run. Students will run between 30-35 laps. 35 is the lap max.

Every student participates in the Fun Run, regardless of pledges raised. Plus, they receive 6 daily character stickers and have access to Boosterthon’s world-class character resources. Parents, you must register your student on funrun.com in order for them to run. Just click the “Parent Permission Box.” Your student will receive a FREE gift just for registering.

Remember to enter your student’s pledges on FUNRUN.COM, a safe and secure website that also allows you to watch the character lessons students learn every day.  Remember to include sponsors’ email addresses so they can receive a pledge confirmation. NOTE: Online payment option may be offered.

How Can You Support Forest Lakes Elementary?

·         Connect your child to sponsors—friends & family—who can give a pledge.  (phone, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

·         Come and cheer on your child at the Boosterthon Fun Run on Friday, October 31, 2014.
