The HVWS Faculty has decided that the lead class will now take on the responsibility of raising and lowering the flag each day. On that note, the Seventh Grade had an informative and inspirational morning with Lang Reese, father of Dempsey and Steven. Lang, a retired US Navy Captain, came to the class to talk about the history of the American flag and its meaning. It was quite moving to hear that the stripes on the flag symbolize the rays of the sun, spreading out and shining upon the country! He then gave the class a lesson on folding the flag, raising it and lowering it. The Seventh Graders will take on this duty this year and next, and will pass it down to Ms. Beardsley's class.
