Shout Outs
FHES Kiwanis K-Kids Club
Forest Hill Elementary recently established a Kiwanis K-Kids club for fourth and fifth grade students.   

Pictured is the K-Kids club executive board with Mr. Percoski and club sponsor, Ms. Spain, signing the official charter club certificate.   

Recently, the K-Kids club volunteered in various aspects to help make the Charity Basketball Tournament a success.    On Saturday, Dec. 14, they will be participating in the Germantown Holiday Parade on the Kiwanis Club float.  
Molly Furhman Receives a GMSD Kindness Award!
Molly Furhman is one of the six students chosen from one of the six GMSD schools for acts of kindness and empathy. Skylar Workman, the FHES school counselor, nominated Molly for this award.

Molly is a noticer. As the fifth of five children not much gets past her. With a keen sense of observation fueled by constant enthusiasm, Molly is always ready to share an idea or the seat next to her. She seems to make friends easily and thinks highly of those who look out for each other. These are the things we hope take root into the core of her character.
