Welcome to Forest Hill Elementary Junior Campus


August 2015

Hello parents and students,

The teachers return to work on August 27th in preparation for the students’ return.   The first day of school for both grade 1 and 2 students is Sept. 1st.  Kindergarten students will be in by appointment on Sept. 1st.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back returning students and extend a warm welcome to new students.  I look forward to my third year at FHJ, getting to know the new students, catching up with returning students, and having the opportunity to interact with new and returning parents.

As you know, Forest Hill Jr. has an enthusiastic and dedicated staff that will nurture and challenge every child.  I am confident that 2015-2016 will be a great year for all!

Please note the following regarding the first few days of school.  We strongly believe that the progressive entry of the Kindergarten students helps ensure a comfortable transition to school.

Welcome to Forest Hill School. The school opened in 1997-98 in St. Lazare off the western tip of the island of Montreal. The junior and senior school campuses were created in 2005 in response to the rapidly growing population in the off-island districts of the Lester B. Pearson School Board. We serve a mostly English-speaking clientele from Kindergarten to Grade 6 in two different buildings. Forest Hill School offers resources, special activities and school events that are geared towards the interests and needs of specific age groups.

The collaboration between staff and the parent community has always been very important. Our parents are key to the educational success of their children and also to the success of our school. Our pedagogical teams work together to enhance the learning of core and complementary subjects. Through the curriculum they aim to instill in students a sense of responsibility for the environment and social causes and they promote healthy and active lifestyle.

 

Characteristics of the school

Forest Hill Junior School services 243 students. The junior campus curriculum is composed of 85% French and 15% English instruction. At the senior campus, students follow a 50% French and 50% English curriculum. When they arrive in grade 3, students start working towards the acquisition of reading and writing in English.

We are very well equipped in technology with a full computer lab as well as a computer and smart board in each class. All staff members use interactive smart board lessons on a daily basis.
We offer extracurricular activities in music and physical education and we partner with an outside organization to offer after school activities. Our school is used for school community special evenings such as movie nights and star gazing evenings. Our gyms also serve the greater community with evening and weekend activities offered by the municipality of St. Lazare.

Forest Hill Junior Elementary school is a part the Peaceful Schools International and is also a member of Brundtland Schools.
