   From the Principal

Dear Forest Ridge Elementary School District Families and Community Members,


Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  As the proud Principal of Lee R. Foster School since the 2000-2001 school year, I welcome you to the Lee R. Foster School section of our District 142 website. By utilizing this site, we hope to widen communication lines between our school and all of the community stakeholders.  Teacher weebly pages, monthly school calendars, monthly lunch menus and "What's New at Foster" are just a few important items contained in this site.  Take the time to click around this section of the district website.  I believe you will find the information to be valuable and informative.


As we start the 2017-2018 school year, we are excited to continue our work in  Common Core Standards implementation in the areas of reading and math, and Next Generation Science Standards implementation.  We will be in our 7th year of Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) implementation, and we are now classified as a Platinum Level Recipient.  We continue to work toward excellence in education for all of the children at Foster.  Our students' success depends on constructive home-school relationships, quality teaching and instruction, well informed families and positive attitudes.  I look forward to the coming year with excitement, and am eager to start another successful school year. 

During your child's stay at Foster, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at cberinger@d142.org or at (708) 687-4763.

Curt Beringer



Remember the 3 "C's" to staying healthy  


Make sure you wash your hands often, especially after coughing or sneezing


When you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose area.  The inside part of your arm at your elbow works great if you don't have anything else.


Although we love our dedicated students, if a student is sick, they should be staying home from school.  Any student who has a fever should stay home for 24 hours AFTER they are fever free without the use of medicine.
