Westvale Elementary Students Gather with Police, Military and Members of the Community for Respectful Ceremony to Retire U.S. Flag

It was a real-life lesson about the history of the American Flag and what to do when the flag is worn and no longer a fitting emblem for display. Westvale Elementary School students gathered on Wednesday with West Jordan Police officers, some members of the military and community for a solemn and dignified flag retirement ceremony. Students, faculty, staff and those in attendance recited the Pledge of Allegiance and students sang a patriotic song while waving small flags. Once the old flag was retired, a new flag was raised to fly at Westvale Elementary.

Thanks, Westvale Elementary for a beautiful ceremony and showing great respect to the American flag.
