Flag Day Celebration

This morning, Fox Hill students participated in a Flag Day celebration in front of Fox Hill surrounding the school's flagpole. At the celebration, grade 3 students performed patriotic songs beautifully on their recorders. Led by Fox Hill Principal Johnson, kids and teachers recited the Pledge of Allegiance as the culminating event.

Prior to the celebration, Room 20 students researched Flag Day on their ipads and reported out at Morning Meeting. Among other factoids they shared, students reported that Flag Day is celebrated each year in the United States. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.
