Welcome To the Forest!


Welcome back to school! We have had a wonderful first couple weeks here in the Forest Class. If this is your first time visiting our blog, we invite you to look through the archive of posts. The theme for the Lower School this year is Life! At CFS. This is the perfect theme because we are celebrating 50 years of Carolina Friends School this year! By looking back through our posts you can get an idea of the projects and learning from year's past. No year is exactly alike, but they are all filled with learning. 

We hope you keep checking back for more News From the Forest throughout the year!


We LOVE a good story in the Forest Class! We celebrated the grand opening of our Forest Class library last Friday!
We have a new check out system for our classroom library. Students began using it for the first time last Friday. Very exciting!
