Des Plaines Park District Executive Director Don Miletic visits with Mr. Sloan’s 4th grade class at Forest Elementary School to discuss sledding hills after the class wrote him letters on how to improve safety at the hill. The class project started when Mr. Sloan told the class he heard on the news that suburbs were banning sledding hills due to safety. Mr. Miletic assured the class that the sledding hill at Arndt Park will stay open due to numerous improvements already made there.


Forest Wrap Patients in Warmth & Love – Eleven blankets will soon make their way to hospitalized children to keep them warm and safe thanks to members of the Forest Elementary School Student Council. Student council members organized their first fundraiser to provide blankets to Project Linus. Tickets were sold during lunchtime for a Teacher Swap. The proceeds ($100) bought supplies to make eleven blankets. Student council members made the blankets with the assistance from their teacher sponsors Kelly Klemundt and Ann Burger.
