Celebrating the Stars and Stripes

Celebrating the Stars and Stripes

The district’s elementary schools were a sea of red, white and blue as Forest Lake, Mandalay and Wantagh elementary school students celebrated Flag Day on June 14.  

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the American Flag in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress and is a time to reflect on the importance of this patriotic symbol.  

At each of the schools, students wore patriotic colors and attire decorated with flags. The students also congregated outside to sing patriotic songs and to take time to honor the American flag.
