MAD ABOUT SCIENCE
Clearly, Forsyth kids are passionate about science, and credit goes to their science teachers: Christine Torlina, Lower School science [Pre-K–Grade 2]; Sharon Anibal, Grades 2-5 science; and Anne Deken, Grade 6 science. Fortunately, Forsyth parents share this enthusiasm for science. Special thanks to our 13 parent volunteers for serving as judges at the Greater St. Louis Science Fair. Without these volunteer judges, we could not have entered this record number of projects.
