Students from from East and West Forest participated in the National Walk to School Day. The teachers worked together and set aside 15 minutes of time so the students could walk/run and celebrate National Walk to School Day. All 50 states, Puerto Rico, and many countries around the world celebrate this event. This event was started in 1997 and it is to promote safe routes to school. The students had a blast participating and many were asking if we could go much longer than our scheduled 15 minutes. It is great to see all of the students and staff working together and making this event very successful.
The East Forest second grade science class recently completed a Unit on Plant Adventures. It is from the Mystery Science program. The students learned that plants are truely alive and face challenges like animals. They also learned that plants have needs and we need the understand what we can do to meet their needs. They grew the grass heads to understand why trees grow so tall.
