Forestville students honored through Enrichment Program

FORESTVILLE – Forestville students were acknowledged for their efforts at the recent school board meeting held in the high school library.

Middle/High School Principal Patrick Moses invited the St. Peters Clergy to award several students for their great character.

“They represent great character traits we focus on,” he said. “These students have done wonderful things.”

Moses proudly spoke of the young students.

“They are becoming wonderful young men and women,” he said. “This is a reflection on how you raised your young men and women.”

Moses presented 12th grader Shamus O’Connor, 10th grader Emily Narraway, ninth grader Trent Hartloff, 11th grader Logan Youngberg, eighth grader Hannah Fetterick, and seventh grader Emily Gunther with certificates as well as a complete teacher and staff letter commenting on all the things they have done.

The Enrichment Program presented what they have been busy working on lately.

Enrichment Parent Volunteer Paul Block commented on his participation in helping the students with their projects.

“I wanted to turn the kids into tech users and not just tech creators,” he said. “Later on in life they may see problems in the environment and now they will now how to build things; we should encourage programs like this.”

President Sylvester Cleary is inviting anyone who is interested to attend the Rally to restore GEA funding cuts on Monday at 7 p.m. ( bus leaves school at 5:30 p.m.) in the Ellicottville Central School gym.

Career Day is coming to Forestville April 24 for ninth and 10th graders to get exposed to different career paths.
