Flag Day

Flag Day resource list has been edited and updated for 2017 Summer Learning!

Still Learning Something New

flag“This flag, which we honor and under which we serve, is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation. It has no other character than that which we give it from generation to generation. The choices are ours. It floats in majestic silence above the hosts that execute those choices, whether in peace or in war. And yet, though silent, it speaks to us — speaks to us of the past, or the men and women who went before us, and of the records they wrote upon it.”  (President Woodrow Wilson)

Americans have been celebrating Flag Day since before President Woodrow Wilson declared June 14 to be a national commemoration in 1916.  We will have a flag and pledge study day as part of our summer calendar studies and a jump start on our upcoming American History unit studies.
