We want to thank the many businesses and organizations that have stepped forward for the past 8 years with their generous contributions and eagerness to support the Forest Hills Foundation for Education and the students of the Forest Hills School District. These partnerships represent the strong community support that the Forest Hills School District requires to move forward in a challenging world and reinforces the value of the statement “it takes a community to raise a child”. The Forest Hills 5K Run/Walk is truly a community event that invites and encourages participation of all individuals.

Impact of the FH5K to date:

All proceeds from the race go directly to the FHFE which in turn provides funding for identified programs within the Forest Hills School district (FHSD). To date the FH5K has raised over $150,000 and is being used to fund the following programs within the FHSD:

  • College and Career Prep Classes:

    FHFE funds PSAT and ACT prep classes so that students can maximize their scores and their college and scholarship opportunities. Both Anderson and Turpin High Schools had a significant increase in the number of students qualifying as National Merit Scholars after taking the 2013 PSAT (the first year the PSAT Practice test was offered). This year, FHFE will also host an interview skills class.

  • Destination Imagination

    Destination Imagination (DI) is a national program in which students learn critical thinking and group problem solving skills. The Foundation pays the cost of DI teams at the six elementary schools and Nagel, including school coordinator stipends, team packets, and entrance fees.

    DI started with 14 teams (approximately 5 students per team) in 2013 that increased to 23 teams in 2014 and 28 teams in 2015. In the last two years, we have had multiple teams go to the State competition following the regional competition.

    “One of the biggest reasons I’m an engineer today is because I got to try it out in DI. DI also helped me develop my team building skills, which I use extensively in coordinating continuous improvement activities.” – former DI participant

  • Nagel After-­‐School Access & Enrichment:

    FHFE provides after-­‐school computer access, tutoring, and enrichment for students at Nagel Middle School. Middle school is a critical transition time for students, as they often require additional emotional and academic support. The Foundation pays for the teachers’ stipends and the cost of the buses to transport students home from the tutoring sessions.

    The After-School program has grown from 20 students per session in 2013 to an average of 40 to 60 students in 2015.

    “I used to have a lot of missing assignments, and now I don’t. I used to get D’s; now I have B’s and C’s.” – Nagel student

  • Teacher Grants:

    New for the 2015-16 school year, FHFE is funding innovative grant requests from Forest Hills teachers that support Forest Hills Foundation for Education’s vision.

    The Foundation will annually seek projects that can be applied to multiple classrooms or multiple schools either in year one or in subsequent years. In this inaugural year, we funded ten grants, reaching more than 1000 students.

THANK YOU
