How exciting was today! It is great to see all of the smiling faces. I wish to extend a warm
welcome to all of our new students and families. You will find Forest Lane Community
School to be an excellent place for children to grow academically as well as socially.

Keeping up with our tradition, we like to keep parents informed, so I encourage you to read
the weekly newsletter as well as information sent home by the classroom teachers. It’s an
easy way to stay informed. Becoming involved with the Parent/Teacher Organization
(P.T.O.) is also a rewarding way to be involved at our school. The parents/guardians of this
group have accomplished amazing things and continue to enhance the educational support
experience at Forest Lane Community School. Additionally, thank you to all the parents
who attended open house and helped Forest Lane get off to a fantastic start to the school
year. We are blessed to have so many parents that take an active role in our school. Your
support is appreciated.

This morning at 8:30 am, we had our first day assembly. This assembly focused on the
CARES principles which include Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, and Self
Control. We also showed a music video “Gotta Keep Reading”.

I know with busy schedules, it is hard to keep up with all the school happenings. We do our
best to communicate with parents through our website and Newsletters. Please check out
the Forest Lane website at The website will keep all of you
well informed on events happening throughout the school year and all events will be posted
on our calendar. If you would like to receive upcoming events in and around the community,
please send me an email request (

What is new at Forest Lane Community…? We are pleased to announce that we received an
implementation grant and have become a charter school. This will help us continue our
journey towards the Montello idea and create a 21st century learning model. It was
encouraging to hear so many of you comment on our classrooms. If fact, some of you said
the same thing I did when we first started this journey. “I wish I had a classroom like
this when I was in school”.

On behalf of the entire Forest Lane Community Staff, I sincerely hope this will be a very
successful year for your student/s. I look forward to working with you throughout the
school year. Have a wonderful, fun, and educational 2012-2013 year! Please feel free to
call or stop in with any questions.

My name is AnneMarie Petersen and I am the new 4th grade teacher. I recently graduated from the University
of Wisconsin-Platteville with a degree in Elementary Education- this is my first teaching job and I am very
excited about it! I am originally from Erie, Illinois but have moved to this area. In my spare time, I enjoy
cooking/baking and reading; I LOVE books! I am really looking forward to being a part of all the new
changes at Forest Lane. I am excited for the school year to begin and the opportunity to meet all the new
faces! 


I am Emily Utzig, the new Kindergarten teacher at Forest Lane and I am so excited to be here and a part of
this wonderful community! I graduated in May from Edgewood College, located in Madison, and this will be
my first teaching experience, but I am so ecstatic to be here!

I grew up in Madison, and attended Madison Public Schools for my K-12 education. I am an only child and
have a very small extended family; however, we are extremely close to one another.

I am an EXTREMELY enthusiastic and compassionate person, and teaching is what I love to do! Thank you
so much for welcoming me into your phenomenal community!

        My name is Ms. Chantalle Bloch and I am definitely excited to be teaching 1st grade at Forest
Lane elementary School. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in May with a PreK-6
licensure and a science minor. I grew up on a dairy farm in Plainfield, WI. I have a small family which
includes my dad, mom, and older sister Dannielle. In my free-time I enjoy reading books. I also enjoy
many outdoor activities including snowmobiling, boating, fishing, hunting, camping, and gardening. I
love watching the Brewers, Badgers, and Packers play whether it is from home or at the game. I cannot
wait to meet my students and take part in their growth and learning throughout the year. I plan to help
my students become 21st century citizens by building their critical thinking, problem solving,
collaboration skills through technology-rich lessons. I look forward to working with my students,
families, and the community throughout the school year.
