Has your school ever closed before and made you move to a different school? That just happened to our school, Forest Park. Forest Park is one out of the seven elementary schools in the Half Hollow Hills School District.

It is not that hard for the fifth-graders like us because we were leaving anyway to go to middle school, but it is probably most hard for the fourth-graders because they have been at Forest Park from kindergarten and even preschool.

We would bet they would love to graduate here, too, but now that the school is closing, they have to graduate at another school, not Forest Park.

There are also positive things about going to a new school. Some of those things are meeting new friends, of course seeing some of your old friends, getting to know new teachers and, last but definitely not least, seeing your old teachers.
