Welcome to Ada Vista!

Welcome to Ada Vista located within the Forest Hills School District, one of our Nation’s great public school systems!  This summer we have been busy working on a new website which we are pleased to unveil to you.

We invite you to explore our new site and learn more about the district and what makes Ada Vista so unique. The new site offers many exciting facts, figures, features and new functionality: A new Interactive Google Calendar for both the District and our school, thus enabling you to add either calendar to your other calendars; School Directories are now embedded Google Docs making it easy for you to access information; Search functionality; new Google Maps enable you to get walking, biking and driving directions to school with real-time traffic updates; Local Weather Forecasts; District-wide and school specific news updates; many news updates made in real time by members of our teaching staff; compatibility with all browsers-iPads, iPhones, and most Smart Phone devices; and a Twitter News Alert System which will enable you to receive  school closing and delay news to your favorite mobile device.

We hope you find this website to be a useful resource for information – whether you are a prospective family, parent, student, or a community stakeholder.  Like all websites, you will be able to find lots of information, interesting news and facts, and helpful tools.  However, even with the best modern technology has to offer, sometimes there is no substitute for a human connection.  We invite you to visit our main officeemail us, or contact our main office number at (616) 493-8970 where we will be happy to help you.

Thank you for your interest in and your support of Ada Vista.

A BIG thank you to all of the many volunteers that helped make field day run smoothly last Friday! We had awesome, enthusiastic, and energetic volunteers running the stations and helping teachers move their class from station to station. And thank you to all of the volunteers who brought snacks and water for the kids so they could have energy to move through 2 and 1/2 hours of game after game! To all of the volunteers- Field Day was a success because of YOU! I thank you and so do your students of Ada Vista!
