Forest Hills Education Foundation Gala to be held Thursday, April 28

From: http://www.fhps.us

The Gala 2011 is a high-impact community celebration of quality education and the role the Forest Hills Educational Foundation plays in helping engage students and expand their horizons. The Gala also creates an opportunity to honor the Forest Hills Public Schools teacher of the year and selected graduates who have made significant contributions to their local communities or the world.

In today's shrinking world, it is not enough to churn out students who can recite facts. Success is about molding and shaping students who can analyze, engage, create, and adapt. Thanks to the investments by the Educational Foundation, students are exposed to a myriad of new ideas, different ways of thinking, and life-changing  experiences to help them achieve their full potential.
