As part of an annual tradition, second-graders at Cherry Lane volunteer to help raise the American flag each May. The activity, which is aligned with the school’s ongoing character education, teaches students about flag etiquette, flag symbolism, the proper way to care for and treat the flag, where it is flown and what it represents. The tradition also serves as a precursor to Flag Day and Memorial Day.
