Huskies, Hawks, and Rangers…Oh My! Get ready to invade downtown Ada as the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation hosts its second annual scavenger hunt, Friday, August 19, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
This is a free community event geared toward preschool and kindergarten through sixth-grade students along with their families. Participants check in at Legacy Park, next to the Ada Village General Store, to begin their adventure, and they will receive a free drawstring backpack and their scavenger hunt map. Then students and families will use the map to find hidden school spirit items as they explore the businesses of downtown Ada. There will be giveaways at every participating location, and at Legacy Park, there will be music, mascots, elementary parent-teacher organizations, and many fun activities.
Friday, August 19, is the Friday before school starts in Forest Hills Public Schools. Join your friends, meet new ones, and kick off the school year in a fun, festive way. See you there!
Our formal dinner offers guests the opportunity to invest in our schools and celebrate the district's success. We proudly recognize the talented people who make Forest Hills a wonderful environment for students to develop their potential.
The annual State of District Luncheon is a great opportunity for guests to hear from Superintendent Behm and other district staff about the innovative work of the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation.
This memorial tourney honors a man who gave much to Forest Hills. This popular fundraiser returns to Thornapple Point Golf Club as an 18-hole scramble. Join us for golf, lunch, dinner and prizes.
Beyond our three annual events, the Foundation provides supporters, alumni and community members with opportunities to support students in their academic programs throughout our award-winning school district.
The Forest Hills Public School district continues to achieve excellence — currently ranking as one of the best school systems in Michigan. That is precisely why it is time for the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation, in partnership with the district, to look thoughtfully at what must be done to retain that leadership position.
The vision of Forest Hills Public Schools is to create a new model of education which equips every student with the 21st century skills essential for success. If Forest Hills truly wants to create a new system of learning and maintain its leadership position in the decades to come, then it must attract research and development funding from people who want to invest in the future success of our students and schools.
Our goal is to attract investment funds to create opportunities for innovation. The Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation will provide the capital needed to fund the research and development of innovations that can lead to new levels of excellence. Once those innovations have been tested and proven, the Foundation can then provide the funds to scale them to the entire district.
