Welcome to the Forest Grove Community School
The Forest Grove Community School is a free public charter school that engages students in scholarship, stewardship and citizenship with the goal of educating for sustainability. We provide a caring, smaller school environment that challenges students to reach their highest potential through learning rooted in the local community. FGCS currently enrolls students in 1st through 8th grades. We operate under a charter contract with the Forest Grove School District and are governed by an independent board of directors. We are an Oregon non-profit corporation and a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. We serve students and families in and around Forest Grove, Oregon. We are located at 1914 Pacific Ave. in downtown Forest Grove, Oregon. You may contact us at 503-359-4600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Empty Bowls Feast March 19 to Fight Hunger in Our Community
FGCS is hosting an Empty Bowls Feast on Thursday, March 19 at the Forest Grove UCC Church. Tickets are available in the office through March 13 for a suggested donation $10, but all are welcome regardless of contribution level. Empty Bowls is a worldwide grassroots movement to end hunger. The premise of Empty Bowls is simple: individuals make handcrafted bowls, which are used to serve a simple meal of soup and bread. Participants take home a bowl at the end of the feast as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. Level 2 and 4 students are making bowls in preparation for the feast; Level 1 and 3 students will make soup and bread. Proceeds from our feast will benefit Family Bridge, a local program supporting families in need.
