Students get patriotic.

The American Legion Auxiliary shared its flag etiquette, and Pledge of Allegiance information with the fourth graders of Apollo Elementary School, Aledo, and New Boston Elementary School on Monday Nov. 9.

Helpers for Connie Alexander at New Boston were Sis Giles and Audrey Stineman, at Apollo, Carolyn McGuire. The children were very attentive and listened closely to what was being discussed, and answered questions about our flag. They also learned what the colors of the flag stand for, how to display the flag correctly, and how to show their support to our flag during parades or other community events where there is a flag being flown.

The Pledge of Allegiance phrases were explained, and students were given a paper to read to help them to understand what was discussed. The children were then given a window cling to place in their homes. We would also like to give a big thank you to both Apollo and New Boston elementary schools for allowing us to come in and share our information with the children.
