New to DJM this year is our very own flag patrol! Our flag patrol attended training sessions last week to prepare them to raise and lower the flags each day. Our first flag raising took place on Veterans Day to honor those who have and are currently serving our nation. The whole school attended the flag raising and recited the Pledge of Allegiance together.

Our Veterans Day program, organized by Mrs. Rapach, took time to celebrate and honor the brave men and women who protect this great nation. Selected students shared what “service above self” means to them. This gave them the chance to recognize friends and family who have chosen service in the form of a military career. Our chorus enhanced the program with their patriotic songs, including the fight songs for each military branch.

Thank you, veterans!
