Today is Flag Day! We had an assembly and welcomed our local police officers and troops to Macdonough School. Our troops marched in with our flags and then some of the first grade girls sang the National Anthem. Chief William McKenna from the Middletown Police gave us a beautiful speech about the importance of Flag Day and we even got to chant USA!
Ms. Angela Spaman, "Queen of Macdonough," then recognized the hand-picked students that were selected for their citizenship at Macdonough. Each teacher choses 2 students from each class that not only displays SURFS behavior, but also turns their homework in on time, always volunteers when needed, and has a respectful and caring attitude at all time. These students were awarded a certificate and a flag pin.
