Ware Academy students and faculty assembled at the school’s flagpoles where honored faculty members who served our country raised the American and Freedom Flags in memory of all the lives lost on this
tragic day seventeen years ago. The entire school recited the Pledge of Allegiance, had a moment of silence and sang the National Anthem led by Ms. Tucker-Oberlin, Ware’s music teacher. Ware Academy fourth graders are responsible for raising the American and Virginia Flag every day. Mrs. Wendy Gardiner, Ware Academy’s Fourth Grade Homeroom Teacher, instructs students in the correct manner in which the flags are flown and stored once they has been lowered at the end of the school day.
