St. Louis is well-known for having diverse neighborhoods that combined make up the Gateway to the West. When teaching immigration to 8-year-olds, our Grade 2 teachers wanted to allow Forsyth students to explore St. Louis through a variety of mediums so they might truly experience the beauty and diversity that all parts of St. Louis have to offer. They decided the best way to teach was to experience! Throughout the school year, students travelled to seven distinct and historical St. Louis neighborhoods and investigated what a neighborhood needs to thrive with an emphasis on access to education, healthcare, and jobs.

At the beginning of the year, Grade 2 students decided to adopt Heifer International, an international aid organization which Forsyth students have supported for over 30 years. The mission of Heifer is to work with communities around the world to end hunger and poverty by providing families with livestock like cows and goats, along with training. As in years past, our students wanted to raise funds to provide an animal to a family. They wanted to make something to sell to friends and family, but quickly realized their business plan needed money to make money. The solution: they took out a loan from the Forsyth School business office.
