Minnesauke Elementary School students and staff gathered together to celebrate the nation’s stars and stripes during a patriotic Flag Day celebration on June 14.

To commence the program, members of the Girl Scouts proudly marched through the crowd displaying decorative flags while members of the Boy Scouts assisted several veterans with a flag rising ceremony. Each student in attendance proudly held a miniature American flag at their seats throughout the program and most supported their patriotism by wearing clothing showcasing the nation’s colors – red, white and blue.

The event featured several musical selections performed by the school’s advanced band and younger grade levels, as well as an informative presentation on America’s White Table of Remembrance and the recipe for an American flag. The winners of the building’s writing and art contests were announced and each student was presented with a commemorative certificate and American flag from the veterans in attendance.
