Principal’s Welcome Letter
Hello! My name is Kristen Pennington and I am delighted to be joining the wonderful Forest Hills’ school community as the new principal of Knapp Forest. For the last 14 years, I’ve spent my time teaching in classrooms, supporting teachers as an instructional coach, and most recently, I served for five years as an elementary principal at Roosevelt Elementary in Lakeshore Public Schools. I am ecstatic about returning to my home town of Grand Rapids and I look forward to making many meaningful connections here in Forest Hills. My desire to honor the important work that has already been occurring at this incredible school is strong, and I am a firm believer that our work together will be most impactful when we focus first on relationships and relational trust. With that being said, I am truly looking forward to meeting you and your families!
