With the red, white and blue blanketing much of the school grounds, Sylvan Avenue Elementary School students and staff members paid tribute to the American flag during a ceremonial Flag Day program at the school. During the event, the students learned about the history of Flag Day, the significance of each step of folding a flag and the importance of honoring the nation’s symbol. Additionally, students were encouraged to take time on the nationally celebrated day to demonstrate their patriotism and pride for their country.

Throughout the event, members of the AM Vets Post 111 from Patchogue assisted in raising the school’s flag, winners of the school Flag Day poetry and poster contest were honored, and the entire school joined together to sing several patriotic songs. Additionally, Sylvan students who serve as Boy and Girl Scouts presented a visual play describing the process of “making” an American flag.
