Friday morning, we had a flag raising ceremony in honor of September 11th (Patriot Day). I absolutely loved it. The whole school, 1st-6th (minus K), gathered around the flag pole; mind you, there are approximately 700 students at my school. We said the pledge, sang "The Star-Spangled Banner", and then closed by singing "God Bless the USA." It was such a great ceremony. There's nothing like having a patriotic moment with 700 other people. The kids were surprisingly good as well. It was very sweet and touching. I would strongly encourage doing something like this this week for either September 11th or Constitution Day (being observed on Friday because we don't have school on Saturday). I love America! I'm so blessed to live in such a fabulous country!
