 Opportunity 
FMS participates....
Water Week 
Was a service learning project on March 3th-7th. The project allows us to partner with small rural  schools in Nicaragua to help provide hand washing stations, vented  latrines, and hygiene education. ALL of the money raised by Forestview goes towards the  construction projects for the schools. Click here to view photos of our completed projects from the last two years.  We are very proud of them! H2O for Life, a non profit, has a goal of funding water, sanitation and hygiene education for schools in developing countries.  The average walk for water in these countries is 3 miles, and can take up to 6 hours daily. The brunt of the responsibility to carry the water falls on the women and girls in these countries. The average water load is 40 – 50 pounds. Girls often drop out of school once they are old enough to begin carrying water.  A lack of bathrooms at schools also forces young women to drop out.

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts. Each year, up to 141 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students.
