My class will be in charge of putting up, taking down, and folding the flag each day at school. Does anyone have any recommended resources that I could use to teach the students how to raise and lower it, how to fold it, rules for flying it and taking care of it, etc.? I know I'll actually have to take them out and show them/model with them at first. An aid will be going out with them each day for putting it up and taking it down, too. I thought maybe at the beginning of the year I could get someone from the American Legion to come in as a guest speaker, but I also wanted to see what resources are out there because I know the beginning of the year can get crazy.

When we were in charge, years ago, I had a soldier ( a student's mother as a matter of fact!! ) come to the class to teach up how to fold it and put it up and down. It was a great experience for us. We rotated the job so every student needed to learn.

If you do a search for ‘US Flag Code’ you will get lots of information.

In addition — there are lots of resources for folding the flag — which is an art and takes practice to do well!

Good luck — I think the Flag Code is something that every citizen should be familiar with!

There must be a Boy or Girl Scoutmaster in your area. I'd think they would be happy to be a resource for your school.

Your high school JROTC program, if it has one, would also be a resource.

It could be cool if some of those students could come your school and model the procedure for your students.

We had members from the American Legion come and give a presentation to the whole school. It was great.

Thanks. I'll keep all of the speaker options in the front of my mind! I was thinking of holding off speakers just because the first week is crazy enough with all sorts of things going on. Plus, I'm new and I know the diocese has a procedure for guest speaker approvals, and that is one more thing I'd have to learn ahead of time. But I love all of the ideas of speakers!
