April was an outstanding month at Forest Elementary. One of the greatest highlights of the month included our 5th Annual Run Forest Run 5K for the PUNT Foundation. With nearly four hundred runners the event was a huge success.
Volunteers for the 5K were abundant and included Buffalo Bills legend Brian Moorman, the University at Buffalo football team and women’s soccer team, various varsity and community based athletic teams in the district, the
Amherst Police Department, the Hutchinson Hose Fire Department, Buffalo Sabres mascot “Sabretooth”, and dozens of other community and staff members. I would specifically like to thank Jenny Allen, Shelley Kimelberg, and Kristina Kraatz who showed outstanding leadership and work ethic in making this event such a dynamic success.
April also showcased our third grade chorus concert. The students did a wonderful job and were led by Mrs. McDowell. Great job third graders!
As we look forward to May, please be aware that the NYS Math Assessments for third and fourth graders will be held on May 1st and 2nd. Additionally, our Ice Cream Social and Book Fair will be on Friday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m.
