First-graders throughout Abbey Lane Elementary School donned red, white and blue for their annual Flag Day Celebration on June 14. Family members were invited to the special event which took place in the school's all purpose room. The room was decorated in patriotic fashion as Principal Dr. George Maurer welcomed the guests.
With six different first-grade classes, two presentations took place throughout the day featuring three classes in each. With the help of music teacher Judy Goodman and their teachers, the students performed a variety of patriotic songs for their loved ones and shared facts that they learned about the American flag, the branches of the military and the country. For their final song, the students proudly waved American flags.
At the conclusion of the event, the teachers thanked their guests for attending and sharing their children with them throughout the year. The group then separated into their classes as each student shared their first grade writing folder with their loved ones containing work from the school year.
