7th Street Elementary Principal's Report
Posted on 08/04/2021


Greetings 7th Street Families:

 Boy has this summer flown!  I hope everyone has had fun hanging out with family, camping, fishing, swimming, or whatever it is that you like to do for fun.  I also hope that it rejuvenated everyone in order for us to return back to school rested and ready to learn.

 I am excited about this upcoming school year.  Our goal this year is to continue working on reading and math scores.  We did see gains in last year’s data and we hope to continue to improve upon achievement data this upcoming year.  Additionally, I am excited to say that we are going to work on student achievement in a normal environment.  It is my intention to start the year the same way as we ended it as far as where we were with COVID measures.  We plan on continuing with sanitation efforts and asking that parents keep their kids home if sick.  We will work with families of students staying home due to illness on an individual basis to get kids back into school as quickly as possible, cognizant of the health of the overall school.

 I am also excited about the board assessing the need for a new/updated elementary school.  The board hired Neenan Archistruction to help guide the board through the process.  This is a company that does everything from assessing the old building and consulting the board on how to proceed with potential asks to the community to eventually, possibly constructing/updating our elementary school.  Right now there are a lot more questions than answers about how the whole process will proceed, but I promise Mr. Gray has plans for community meetings and informational sessions that will make things more clear.  In fact, our open house/ice cream social will have a little different timing this year so we can start talking to you all about what our needs are.  The social will be August 19th.  I will be in touch with the time and place details soon.

 Finally, 7th Street, I ask that everyone put in their very best this year.  Our student’s success depends on it.  That success isn’t just born from the work of our students, teachers, and support staff.  Our students depend on your support as well.  Make sure you are committed to reading with your child at least 4 nights a week for 20 minutes a day and completing the math homework that is assigned every night.  Together we can make a difference!  Last, but most important, I look forward to seeing everyone on August 18, 2021 - on the first day of school to start our new year off with our new rally cry:  Work Hard, Dream Big, Never Give Up! 

Thank you,


Principal Forst
