STUDENT/PARENT GES TOUR: Friday, April 27
Students, who were nominated for GES, will be excused from their elementary school for the morning. We will begin with a group meeting at 9:30 a.m. to discuss the format for the visit. Once the brief meeting is finished, GES students will be trail guiding your child on the nature trails at the school. Parents will also enjoy this experience along with their child, so be sure to dress for an outdoor walk. We will board the busses to return to CW and NT at approximately 11:30 a.m.

Goodwillie Selection Results Letter:
The selection results letter will be mailed to families approximately June 8th.
According to FHPS Board Policy, to be eligible for admission, students must be enrolled and maintain enrollment in Forest Hills Public Schools by September of fourth grade. The exception to this rule is a student that becomes a Forest Hills Public Schools resident and enrolls in Forest Hills Public Schools between September 1 and January 31 of their fourth grade year.
As GES is a district-wide magnet school, at the end of the two-year program, students will return to the middle school that corresponds with the current elementary school they are attending.
