The Character Rocks tradition is long and beloved at Forest Trail. At the end of each school year, teachers choose a word or phrase that describes each student based on their year with them. Personalization with drawings and paint top off these smooth, quality rocks to create a keepsake for the ages. The word(s) on the rocks are kept top secret from the students until the very end of the year, at which point teachers usually hold a "rock ceremony" to go through each rock and celebrate each child's uniqueness as a class.
The Character Rocks tradition is a touching, sweet conclusion to the school year and the many volunteers and donors of supplies are deeply appreciated who make this happen for over 600 children each May.
