Hi Forest Acres Elementary families,

Some of the greatest gifts we can give our students are excellent tools for learning. The need for these new resources is ongoing, and this year we have a goal of $30,000 to help our amazing teachers and students.

We’re grateful to help fund Forest Acres Elementary with access to resources, but we could never do this without a support system like YOU!

Youth Art Month is a celebration of the visual arts held in March!

Youth Art Month encourages support for quality school art programs and promotes art material safety. The program provides a medium for recognizing skills developed through visual arts experiences unlike any other curriculum subjects, including:

  • * Problem solving
  • * Creativity
  • * Observation
  • * Communication

Our Easley area art show will run from March 15-March 23 at EHS, with a reception on the 23rd from 5:30-7:30. We will have 30 pieces of art from FAE featured in the show. These pieces will then move on to the Pickens County Museum for the month of April. I know our students would love to see you at the EHS reception! They are always so proud of their work in the show. From 5:30-6:00 is a drop-in time to view the pieces on display, so you wouldn't need to stay for the awards reception.
