Thank you to all of the Forest Heights family members who came to honor our Veterans at our annual Veterans Day Program. The program began with a patriotic bagpipe processional from the Baton Rouge Caledonian Pipes and Drums. Boy scout representatives attending Forest Heights presented the colors while Mikayla Walker led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. The Forest Heights Singers Choir directed by Mrs. Sally Hermann and the 3rd Grade Performance Dance Ensemble performed for our audience of Veterans. The crowd was also entertained by an instrumental performance from Jyrah Williams and Mrs. Sally Hermann. East Baton Rouge Parish School System Associate Superintendent Ben Necaise was our guest speaker. The program was wrapped up with final comments from our principal, Myra Varmall. Guests enjoyed a small reception in our library after the performance.
Saturday, October 28th, Coach, the Junior League of Baton Rouge, and a group of parent volunteers came out to FHAE and painted our court with a brightly colored mural of a map of the USA and various court games. Thank you Ms. Mary, Ms. Brown with “After Care", Ms. Winston, Nate Smith, and Brian Johnson for volunteering.
It took them over six hours to complete everything. When you are at recess, check out the great job they did! The kids all LOVE it!
