Flag Day

The Rushmore Avenue School student body along with members of American Legion Post #1718 celebrated Flag Day together. Commander Al Piscitelli shared a vignette about a WW II veteran and presented essay contest winners with certificates, and medals. Students wrote about “What the American flag means to me.” First place winner and recipient of a $100 check went to Karina M. Second place went to James K and third place to Jack T. The Rushmore band performed in front of the school and the third graders adorned the walkway with American flags.
