Did you know that Thursday, Nov. 13 was World Kindness Day? Well students in Forest Hills are taking that one-day celebration and turning it into a six-week initiative.

Many schools throughout the district honored veterans yesterday as part of National Veterans Day. From students attending school assemblies and learning from men and women who serve or have served our country, to children writing letters to our troops, Veterans Day was one with purpose and meaning for our students. Pine Ridge Elementary School hosted a special lunch for Veterans, something they have been doing for almost 10 years. This year, almost 70 veterans joined the children to share stories and a meal, but more importantly to share their valuable time with today’s generation.
