On Friday the kids of Westside had an assembly to learn about safe use of the internet. Kids are always encouraged to be careful with the information that they give, and who they interact with online and when using social media apps. Continue the conversation at home and talk with your children about safe internet use!
Last Thursday Westside was treated to an American Heritage assembly, which taught a lot about Utah's history. Through music, photography, and storytelling the kids learned about the formation of the land, and the way the pioneers lived. The kids listened to songs and were also encouraged to participate and sing along as they learned.
On Friday Westside honored our nation's veterans in an assembly. The student council spoke about each branch of the military and asked members of those branches present to stand and be appreciated. Mrs. Krabbe's husband, Staff Sargent Moxey of the National Guard, then spoke to the students about the importance of respecting those who serve. The assembly ended as the student body sang "God Bless the USA."
In honor of Veteran's Day, the students in Mrs. Boyer's class wrote thank you letters to a local hero, the father of one of our students. S.Sgt. Gehret is currently serving our country across seas as part of the Army National Guard. We are grateful for his service as well as the service of all the other brave men and women serving our country!
