                 Forrest Family Quilt:

Forrest School celebrated Diversity during the month of December. We are a unique community where we have families from all over that have made their homes right here in Fair Lawn.  

One book we have read together is the Keeping Quilt by Patricia Polacco.  

Each student has been given a square of paper that they will decorate focusing on their own backgrounds and traditions.  Please click here for a copy of the quilt.  We ask that all quilt pieces are handed in by January 4, 2019. 

In a culminating activity Forrest School will create our own stories, as we are a family too.

On behalf of the Safety Team and School Character Education Committee we appreciate all of your efforts in helping your child develop a strong identity while accepting differences in others.

Thank you!
