Forest Area 6th Graders Visit Gettysburg

The 6th grade students  at Forest Area have been studying the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War.  As part of the curriculum students visited Gettysburg.  The trip provides students with a first hand look at the battlefields of Gettysburg including Devil’s Den and Little Round Top.  They also visited the Diorama, the Cyclorama, and the Museum and Visitor Center at Gettysburg National Military Park.   Thank you to everyone who helps to make this trip a success every year.

 

East Forest Mini Relay Event

The Mini Relay for Life Club at East Forest High School recently held a relay event for the elementary students on the soccer field.  The children were separated into four groups that walked around the loop like you would do at an actual relay.  As they walked the older students taught them topics such as sun safety and exercise benefits which will help keep them healthy as they grow into adulthood.  A hydration table was available including a bead station.  As each lap was made a bead was issued.  Students were able to get lap sponsors for a monetary donation.  All proceeds from the day were given to the American Cancer Society’s Forest County Relay for Life.
