Theylearned how New York and the United States got their freedom from England'sKing. In the Living Museum, students dressed up as important figures of theAmerican Revolution. After researching their figures in class, students wereready to recite what they learned when visitors pushed their museum “button”.Our guests told me that they learned so much about the brave colonists whoworked so hard to free our country from British Rule.

Heavy Metal is Music to Forest Lake’s Ear!
Forest Lake recently held their first metal recycling event that allowed community members to dispose of their metal trash and help a great cause at the same time! The Forest Lake PTA is raising money to fund the cost of a new recycling program at the school. All plastic water bottles will be recycled throughout the school with new blue containers placed in the cafeteria and in every classroom.
The metal collection event was supported by AMF Wantagh Lanes who allowed the event to be held in their parking lot and who donated free bowling passes to participants and also by North Shore Recycling Company who paid the PTA per pound for the donated items. According to program chairperson, Barbara Saltzman, the event showed such potential that there will be another one in the near future.
So while you are spring cleaning, remember to hang on to any metal bearing items including small appliances, electronics, tools, bicycles, pots, pans, etc. and look for details about the next collection.
Your trash turns to treasure for our school and for the entire planet!
Caitlin Schneider, Art Teacher at Forest Lake, has been named KJoy Teacher of the Month for March! Congratulations Ms. Schneider!
