New Flag

Monday September, 18

You’re a Grand Ole’ Flag rang out across the sky as third grade students at Barnett, led by Mr. Cope sang the patriotic song. The song was the beginning of a flag ceremony that took place in honor of Constitution day. Students of Barnett Elementary gathered on the grass around the flagpole singing the National Anthem, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and listened to speeches given by 6th grade students. Barnett has retired our old flag and brought in a new. The old flag will be given to the American Legion so they may properly retire the grand ole’ Flag. Goosebumps could be felt at the flag ceremony during the time of reverence as the old flag was taken down, but it wasn’t because of the chilly morning. It has been a special day honoring our forefathers and the flag with the leaders of tomorrow.
