New Families

Welcome Great Hearts Forest Heights Falcon Families! The Parent Service Organization serves in partnership with Forest Heights school staff to support Falcon families via volunteerism, community engagement, and fundraising. I invite you to review the checklist of items below so you can get fully onboarded and engaged this school year. We also have a New Family FAQ Document filled with links to answer many of your questions. Additionally, the New Family Information page on our school website is another wonderful resource. I look forward to supporting our Falcon community together with you and making this school year amazing!
