Art teacher Terry Nelson led the kindergarten and first-grade students in a discussion and art lesson about the American flag. Students in grades 2-4 were asked to write about what America means to them, as well as draw a picture using patriotic images. They also learned about the sacrifices made by soldiers and practiced how to say “thank you” to a veteran.
