  • Hammond Westside Montessori Students Show Appreciation for our Military

    Mrs. Collette Taillon’s combo class at Hammond Westside Montessori School attended the arrival ceremony for Staff Sgt. Lance Bergeron at the LANG’s Army Aviation Support Facility #1 at Hammond Regional Airport in Hammond on March 25, 2015. During their attendance they learned the importance of honoring our military and showing reverence to our flag and country. Back at school, two of Mrs. Taillon’s students, Amelia Babin and Kammie Babin, were sharing with two Pre-K students, Conor Young and Morgan Young, how to properly hold the American flag and why our military is so important (pictured). This experience taught our students a new meaning of the word freedom and the sacrifices our military makes to protect and ensure this fundamental right.
