  • Student Ambassadors 

    At Forest Grove Elementary School, we have 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who serve as Student Ambassadors. One of the roles as Student Ambassadors is to meet and greet new students at Forest Grove and provide a tour of the school. At the end of the tour, our Student Ambassadors escort our new students to their new classroom.
