On the last day of school, West Forest Elementary students had a blast outside for fun day. They play kickball, decorated with sidewalk chalk, received bubble gum and sunglasses, and ran the West Forest Indian Dash. They had a great time running the obstacle course. We would like to give a HUGE thank you to Tionesta Builders Supply for letting us borrow HUGE pipes to crawl over and through. We wish all students a wonderful and safe summer and look forward to see you soon!
