Welcome Forest Knolls Families! 

The Forest Knolls PTA is excited about the 2016-2017 school year and we hope you are too! Feel free to use this website as an informational resource for Forest Knolls.  On this site you can become a member of the PTA, find out about current FKES events, purchase spirit wear, volunteer for events and much, much more.  We have several exciting events occurring over the next few weeks.  We look forward to seeing you!

Here's what's up at Forest Knolls. . . 

Presidents' Day: Schools & Offices are Closed - Monday, February 20th

African-American Heritage Night - Friday, February 24th from 7-8:30PM
In the All-Purpose Room. Featuring the FKES Jazz String Club (with Mr. Glabman), FKES Sogo African Rhythm Ensemble (with Mr. Persic), special presentation from and about our new National Museum of African American History and Culture (with the museum's Chief Digital Officer & FKES parent Mr. Martin), and a performance by Taratibu, a local young people's performing arts company that focuses on African and African American culture.  Refreshments will be available starting at 6:45pm, with much appreciation to our local Whole Foods and Giant Food for their generous donations.  If you have a middle or high school child who would like to earn some SSL hours, we have some volunteer opportunities for helping staff an activity table, refreshments table, and more.  Please email Meredith at MLarson9@earthlink.net before Friday.  Please ensure your child brings an SSL form Friday night.  We look forward to seeing you and your family!

PTA Meeting - Tuesday, March 7th from 7-8:30PM

Pizza Bingo & Silent Auction Fundraiser - Saturday, March 18th from 5:30-8PM
In the Northwood High School cafeteria.  We are in need of donations of products, services, or gift cards for the silent auction or bingo prizes.  In a single night, this event raises around $10,000, nearly half of our PTA's annual budget!  All money raised goes to support the students and school in amazing ways.  If you or someone you know can support this event with a donation, please refer to the donation form and request letter and let Carrie know at Carrie_Ewachiw@yahoo.com if you have any questions.  We really hope to make this another successful year and to continue to be able to fund all of our PTA programs, events, teacher grants, etc.

In the media center.
