Monday - "Use your head, don't do drugs!" (wear a hat)
Tuesday - "Strike out drugs!" (wear stripes or plaid clothing)
Wednesday - "Team up against drugs!" (wear team shirt)
Thursday - "Give drugs the boot!" (wear cowboy clothing/boots)
Friday - "Black out drugs!" (wear black clothing)
As a special tribute to our veterans, LCMS West will be hosting a special musical assembly program on Tuesday, November 11, 2014. All veterans who have served in the military and their familes are invited to attend. The performance will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the gymnasium and will be followed by a reception in the media center. Our guest will enjoy a morning in which the students, faculty, and staff express respect for Amercia, its symbols, and most of all, our honored veterans.
In a continuing effort to show suppost, we will be collecting cards, CDs, and DVDs to send in care packages for our soldiers. If you would like to donate, please bring these items to the media center by November 21.
