SCHOOL NUTRITION NEWSLETTER
message from the director
If you haven't had the opportunity to visit the Military Hall of Honor at VHS, please put it on your to do list...it's breathtaking. This exhibit is a tribute to all VHS graduates who have served our country. Amber Marrs added her father's name to the display, an Air Force veteran and 1959 graduate of Valparaiso High School. Adding a family member to the Military Hall of Honor is a lasting gift of gratitude at no cost. If there is someone you would like to nominate, visit https://valparaisohigh.valpo.k12.in.us/apps/pages/vhsmilitaryhallofhonor and complete the form. Names are added to the wall twice a year, in May during Military Appreciation Month and in November for Veterans Day. Many veterans continue to serve after leaving the military. I am reminded of a Heavilin student's grandfather who volunteered to serve during the massive staff shortages of the pandemic. This beloved photo received the all time highest number of likes on our social media page. Thank you to those who have, or are, the ones willing and brave enough to protect and serve, happy Veterans Day!
