Jamison Elementary held a special Veterans Day assembly for fifth graders, who will be charged with raising and lowering the school’s American flag throughout the school year.
Veterans were in attendance at the assembly, where fifth grade teacher Mr. Jared Hottenstein conveyed the sanctity of the American flag and how our service men and women have sacrificed to protect all that it represents. Students read poems in appreciation of our Veterans.
The fifth grade then broke into groups and worked with their Veteran guests to learn how to properly fold an American flag. The assembly instilled in students a new sense of respect and appreciation for our flag and our Veterans.
