Third graders in Mr. Kahler’s class at Forest Avenue Elementary School are studying forces and motion as part of their science curriculum. Learning about force and how it needs both size and direction, the students raced toy cars down the hallway to test their force using different inclines as part of a STEM lesson. The goal was to get their cars to launch the furthest using the different inclines.

During their library classes with Mrs. Francisco, all students at Forest Avenue Elementary School participated in the Hour of Code. In honor of Admiral Grace Hopper's birthday on Dec. 9, Computer Science Education Week is an annual weeklong celebration to expose K-12 students to computer science, advocate for equitable computer science education for all students and celebrate contributions to computer science.

The students at Forest Avenue Elementary School are going the distance this year, thanks to the newly launched Mileage Club. The club began in October and Forest Avenue students have already walked more than 2,000 miles as a school. An outdoor space is sectioned off and classes walk the track twice – for the equivalent of one mile – at an allotted timeslot each day. Students get a stick for every mile completed and receive a token for every five miles. The walks help to increase physical activity while also giving students a break in the day. The school plans to continue the club in the winter months and move the walks indoors.
