Forest Trail Elementary


On behalf of the FTE staff, I would like express our gratitude for all of the Forest Trail families and Veterans fore making our Veteran's Day Assembly so special. Our students serenaded 47 veterans as we celebrated this special day. Mr. Steve Wiehe spoke to our students as did every serviceman and woman. It all added up to a very powerful and moving morning. To our families, thank you for sending in the many photos which line our hallways and attending our event. To our special guests, the Veterans; we are indebted to your service and thank you for allowing us to celebrate you. Additional thanks to our FTE staff Karen Purdy, Bonnie Seelig, Kelly Dunning, Nancy Bettersworth, Julie Goodnough, Ashley Krause, Kristina Bishop and Angela Woodbridge for their efforts to organize and plan such a special day.  Special thanks to FTE parents Allyie Carberry and Jennifer Ghai for the Veteran's Day photo booth and photographs!
