ForK - For Kids
Hunger doesn’t end on Friday. ForK is dedicated to helping families fill the weekend gap when in-school meals are not available by providing healthy, nourishing foods on a weekly basis. 

Food items offered include: • Fruit • Granola Bars • Oatmeal • Tomato Soup • Chicken Noodle Soup • Chicken and Rice Soup • Beef Vegetable Soup • Spaghetti & Meatballs • Macaroni & Cheese • Tuna • Chicken • Corn • Green Beans • Peas • Raisins • Popcorn • Pretzels

ForK was founded in Manassas, Virginia to help schools reach local children who do not have enough to eat on the weekend. We deliver food items to participating schools and, each Friday, teachers or counselors discretely place that food in the backpacks of children who need it. Every effort is made to ensure that the program is operated in a manner that promotes respect for the children and families served. We work closely with local schools to reach the children and families in greatest need. Targeted schools are either not currently serviced by other weekend food organizations, overlooked because of the overall socio-economic status of the area around the school, or in need of greater assistance.
 
Donate Just $5 per week provides a child with nourishing food for the weekend. A donation of $260 will feed a local child every weekend for a year.

Author/Illustrator Henry Cole's Visit to Signal Hill
On Thursday, March 26, Author and Illustrator Henry Cole visited our school to share "the mystery behind writing and illustrating your own book."  Mr. Cole is the author and/or illustrator of many books, including Unspoken, Barefoot: An Escape on the Underground Railroad, Big ChickensA Nest for Celeste, and many more.  Book signings were done during Mr. Cole's visit.  It was a clever and engaging visit!
 
For Grade 5 Parents
As you know, your child is facing a major change in his/her school life with the upcoming move to middle school. In middle school, your child will have the opportunity to be part of many new and exciting experiences. As wonderful as this can be, many students fear this transition. This happens because they do not know what to expect and they have a natural fear of the unknown. To help them, the School Counselors will be visiting the fifth grade classrooms, during the last month of the 2014-15 school year, and meeting with all fifth graders to talk about these changes.

A survey will be sent home to ask parents about concerns or questions they might have. Please take a moment to fill out the information and return it to the school counseling office at Signal Hill.

Please click on the Signal Hill School Counseling page to stay updated on any new Middle School Announcements.
