Forestville Road Elementary School is adopting Long Branch Elementary School located in Lumberton, NC. After Hurricane Florence devastated many homes of the students that live in Robeson County, Long Branch & their teachers & students need our help! Forestville is very similar to Long Branch except Long Branch has missed many weeks of school because of the hurricane damage. Mrs. Hafner would like our parents & students to consider donating these newly purchased items
Overall, only about 1% of Wake County Public School System students will be impacted in each of the two years of this plan.
