                     The Forest Charter School Education Foundation would like to acknowledge the continued flexibility and creativity shown by our parents, students, supervising teachers, and staff during these unique times. Moving forward into the 2021-22 school year, we continue to be inspired and encouraged by our school
                      Your generosity allows the Foundation to continue to enrich areas such as technology, science, art and to respond quickly to changing safety requirements, in addition to an annual student scholarship program! This year, the Foundation is also looking at the possibility of a multi-year plan to update our playgrounds at each Learning Center to support physical education for our students and local communities. Our goal is to raise $40,000, which will go a long way in strengthening our existing and yet-to-be-dreamed- up programs. We would like to inspire everyone to give as generously as they can. If you are able, we suggest an annual contribution of $250 per student to help us meet our goal, but no amount is too small.

    Pledge and donate today!
    If you prefer to send a check, you should mail your check made out to FCSEF to:

    On behalf of the Forest Charter School Education Foundation Board, thank you in advance for being a part of our community and your continued support of our students.

    In appreciation,
    Susan Binon
    FCSEF Board Chair

    Forest Charter School is a public charter school that accepts and serves all students, including students who are English learners and whose parents/guardians are not proficient in English. Further, FCS will use information families provide about their English proficiency only to identify services for the student and it will not affect enrollment eligibility. FCS welcomes non-U.S. citizens, students with disabilities, low-income students, and students who are struggling academically or require additional academic support. FCS uses a public random drawing “lottery” for enrolling students and only turns away students when there are no seats available.  

    For concerns regarding our school’s Title IX compliance, contact Meshawn Simmons or call 530-265-4823
