Skyline Summer School Students Participate In Flag Retirement Ceremony

Skyline R-2 teacher Terry Prock wanted the Skyline summer school students to learn and experience the proper and respectful way to retire a U.S. flag. On Tuesday, June 27, Prock enlisted the aid of the Mtn. Grove VFW for this endeavor.  Prock works year round to teach the students of Skyline School the many facets of how the flag must be respected.  The older students were taught how to properly fold the flags and then assisted in folding the flags for disposal. Each student would then in turn properly pass the flag to a VFW member who would place the flag on the fire. Approximately 150 flags were properly retired.
