In remembrance

LEST WE FORGET - Joyce Edmaiston and Pearl Lawson, representatives of the local Woodman of the World chapter, presented Carr Elementary School with a special flag to help the students and staff recall the events of September 11, 2001. The Flag of Honor is created from the names of those who perished in the terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The flag presented to Carr is a 10th anniversary edition of the flag first created in 2002. Wording on the flag states that "now and forever it represents their immortality." More about the flag may be found at www.flagofhonor.org. Accepting the flag (pictured above) during a recent Morning Meeting was Mrs. Black's first grade class. The Flag of Honor was hung in the Carr Library on Wednesday morning. A trio of sixth-graders (pictured below) made certain the flag was hanging correctly prior to the rest of the school viewing it. In addition to the Flag of Honor, the Woodman of the World gave each classroom at Carr a desk-sized American flag like the one students in Mrs. Buckingham's kindergarten classroom (pictured below) are viewing. The American flag which flies in front of Carr Elementary was flown at half-staff on Wednesday as another way to memorialize 9/11. Since most of the students weren't even born on the historical date, several teachers chose to teach lessons about the happenings of that day.
