The Forest Avenue PTA sponsored the Cultivating Kindness Assembly. During the assembly, Mr. Richard Specht talked to all the students about spreading kindness and paying it forward. He donated a personalized copy of his book "A LITTLE REES SPECHT CULTIVATES KINDNESS" to the Forest Avenue School Library. The Rees Specht Life Foundation was created in memory of Mr. Richard Specht's son REES. In appreciation that Mr. Specht presented to the school on REES' birthday, December 19th, the Forest Avenue Family created and donated "Birthday Boxes" to Birthday in the spirit of paying it forward.
