Congratulations to the Forest Park Individual Education (I.E.) students, including second-grade students (from left to right) Jose Alvarez, Braedon Gomez, Kati Guzman, who collected socks during the month of January at the school. Hundreds and hundreds of socks were donated by students, staff, and family members. The donations were given to the SOS Children’s Village in Lockport for their foster care program. The community service project was coordinated by Forest Park second-grade teacher Angie Kot.
