Dear Forder Families,
This past Monday, January 30th, Forder Elementary received the high honor of an exemplary Professional Learning Communities (PLC) school status by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). One of sixteen schools this school year in the state of Missouri and only one of 89 schools ever for the state to receive this award, this is a great recognition for our school, staff, students and families. I am so proud of Forder Elementary!
YouTube Parent Notification
Beginning Monday, February 6th, students in K-8 grades will have access to YouTube on school devices. I have sent letters home explaining the reasoning for making this change, how it will support learning and how the district will protect students from inappropriate content. If you have any questions or concerns about this decision, please feel free to contact me.
