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!
