Congratulations to Forest Hills Central High School senior, Andrew Fox on being named one of 14 Class A Michigan High School Athletic Association Scholar Athletes. Andrew has excelled both on and off the tennis courts and baseball fields. In his essay he wrote, “Every sport has rules that each athlete must follow, but sportsmanship is a choice – a conscious decision an athlete makes to play the game with integrity, honor and respect. How athletes play the game, how they practice and how they treat their teammates and coaches defines their character.” To read more about this prestigious award, click here.

Forest Hills Central vs Lowell
Ada Vista Elementary School’s Club Verde or Green Team made fliers for local grocery stores such as Forest Hills Foods and the D&W at Knapp’s Corner, to put on their lane lines to advise people to use reusable bags instead of plastic bags. Earlier this month the students also set up display tables to sell their reusable bags and hand out informational fliers at the stores. The students have been working hard all year recycling, TerraCycling and educating others in the community about recycling.
