Classroom Spotlight- Room 330
Did you know Room 330 tends to the American Flag? This tradition started five years ago. Classroom teacher Kirk Showers shared, "We were looking for classroom jobs to do. We asked who put up the flag in the morning? The custodian at the time was Doug M., so we asked him if we could take over the job. He gladly gave us the job."
Classroom staff make sure each student partipates in a meaningul way:
- Help carry the flag
- Learn to put the hooks on
- Help pull the rope to raise the flag
- When taking it down, they help catch the flag
- Students and staff make sure to never allow it to touch the ground
- Carry the flag in at the end of the day
- A few students have learned to fold the flag the proper way
Thank you Room 330!
