PHOTOS: Greywolf Elementary honors veterans

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.

Sequim city councilors agreed in late July to extend a moratorium for six months on manufactured home developments so city staff and the planning commission could better analyze the Sequim Municipal Code’s language on private streets. Discussions about private streets in manufactured home developments came up late last year during the binding site plan application for Lavender Meadows, a 217-site manufactured home park at the intersection of North Sequim Avenue and Port Williams Road.
