FORESTVIEW IS AN ECOSCHOOL!

Congratulations to all of the Forestview Falcons on their Bronze EcoSchool certification! Under the dedicated direction of Mrs. Worrall, a team of extremely hard-working students endeavoured to 'green' Forestview, this year. Many great initiatives were undertaken such as our Boomerang Lunch, building an outdoor classroom, and Lightless Lunch, to ensure we passed certification. To learn more about our new certification go to: Ontario EcoSchools. Well done, Falcons and special thanks go to Mrs. Worrall, Mrs. Sissmore, and Mrs. Ratelle for their ongoing support and hard work!
