Celebrating Flag Day

Students, staff, parents and local first responders recently gathered outside Slocum Elementary School to celebrate Flag Day on June 14. Those in attendance dressed in red, white and blue outfits, recited the Pledge of Allegiance, and sang patriotic songs around the school’s flag pole, including performances by the school band.

After the flag-raising ceremony, the guests visited the classrooms to talk to students about their dedication to the community they serve. Physical education teacher John Zambriski helped organize the event in the hope that it would provide students with the opportunity to recognize the honorable service these professionals provide and to show their appreciation for that dedication.  

A special thanks goes out to the first responders who took the time to join with Slocum students on Flag Day — Anthony Baiocco, Robert Candela, Anthony Daniels, Anthony Fiore, Martin Gregg, Chris Germano, Jim Harrington, Jason McKevitt, Donna Monahan, Steven Slarcella and Robert A. Sowinski.
