We were humbled to be able to honor our veterans today with an assembly to show our appreciation for all that they do for us. The students sang their songs, we provided some sweet treats, and the veterans shared with our wolves why they joined the military, where they have traveled, and how long they have served. Thank you, veterans, for all you do!
Tomorrow, Nov. 9th, is our Veteran's Day assemblies. Make sure to wear your red, white, and blue tomorrow.

This morning, the PTO Multicultural Committee showcased a celebration of Mexican culture featuring Gloria Contreras. Gloria is a local artist who is known for showcasing her Alebrijes throughout events in the Chicagoland area. Alebrijes are brightly colored Mexican folk art sculptures of fantastical creatures. She presented her designs before school in the halls and outside to the students of Western Avenue. Our PTO Multicultural Committee seeks to expand cultural awareness throughout the school year with other monthly cultural showcases.
