East Forest Elementary Designs Robots

The third and fourth graders at East Forest have been designing robots!  The students used area and perimeter to build the parts of their robots.  The “robot builders” each received a parts list that had area and/or perimeter measurements for each robot body part.  Once they measured out all of the robot parts, they built their robots.  Each student built 3 robots, and they decorated them in different themes.  It was a great time doing math and being creative!

Mental Health Awareness Month

Forest Area High School students recently took part in the Build A Tree for Mental Health Awareness Month challenge. The trees were designed as a symbol of our need to support each other as a community and acknowledge that if we are going to have strong, vibrant communities, we need to work together! Photos of the trees will be on display at the Mental Health Awareness Symposium at the Warren Public Library from 6:00 – 8:00 PM on May 31st. For more information about the symposium, contact Adam McNeill (
