FG School District welcomes citizens to open house

Community members are invited to tour the new science classrooms, gymnasium, cafeteria and other improvements at Forest Grove High School during a “Bond Celebration & Open House” on Thursday, Nov. 14.

The new facilities were made possible by voter support of a $65.3 million bond measure in 2010.

Student-led tours will be offered from 4 to 6 p.m., with a ceremony at 5:30 p.m.

Pacific University’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing program has once again been recognized as one of the best low-residency programs by Poets & Writers magazine.
