Joining two other schools in the district, Greywolf Elementary in Carlsborg held a special service honoring those who have served and are serving in U.S. Armed Forces branches on Nov. 8.
Gregory Newton, a teacher at Greywolf Elementary School, talked with students about his experience in the U.S. Marine Corps at the school’s annual Veterans Day assembly on Nov. 8. Newton, who was raised in Sequim (he went to Helen Haller Elementary School) he served for six years in the Corps, urged students last week to remember to “work hard, play hard, be honest and be kind.”
The school’s presentation included songs by Greywolf fifth-graders and personal thanks to the veterans.
“This is what service looks like,” Greywolf principal Donna Hudson told students.
Among the veterans on hand were Clallam County deputy Ben Tomco, father of three Greywolf students at Greywolf.
