At St. Mary’s school, the 5th grade class is responsible for the school’s daily flag-raising ceremony that marks the beginning of each day and our students’ commitment to hard work, good citizenship and academic excellence. In 5th grade, this is a cherished and honored tradition that our younger students look forward to participating in. The boys and girls go out in a team of three and raise the United States flag. Every other day, the Nebraska state flag or school flag are also raised. At St. Mary’s, students are taught citizenship and empowered to take ownership of our school. As students complete their duty there’s a sense of pride on their face that reflects important life’s lessons. For more photos click here.
