“This flag, which we honor and under which we serve, is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation. It has no other character than that which we give it from generation to generation. The choices are ours. It floats in majestic silence above the hosts that execute those choices, whether in peace or in war. And yet, though silent, it speaks to us—speaks to us of the past, or the men and women who went before us, and of the records they wrote upon it.”  President Woodrow Wilson

Every day, our students honor the flag by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and to show our continued support of our nation, the flag is raised at the beginning of school day and lowered at the end of the school day.  Eighth grade students — shown here are Lucas Cross, Jimmy Neme and  Aidan Beauchamp — have this great responsibility each day to honor the flag by taking on this responsibility.
