Congratulations to a group of fourth grade students for having been named to the Morrison Flag Patrol for the 2001-02 academic year. Members were selected for flag patrol duty after completing a job application, writing an essay on the topic, "Why I Want to Be on the Flag Patrol," demonstrating their ability to properly fold a flag, and receiving high recommendations from teachers regarding each candidate's dependability.
The flag patrol is responsible for raising and lowering the American and Ohio flags daily at Morrison. They are directed by teacher, Sabrina Kotts. This year's members include: Team Red-Kerrigan Boyd, James DeGraw, Jessica Gilkey, Ashley Luehrman, Lyndsey Noftz, and Kasie Sweeney. Team Blue-Brynnie Delang, Tenisha Dewees, Susanne Hixson, Christian Showalter, Joe Tysko, Kyle Young.
Yearly, we examine ways to recognize students for their accomplishments. During the 2001-02 academic year, we created two new award categories. The first was titled "Pledge of Allegiance Leader (PAL)". Because we believe it's important for students to appreciate their country and its traditions, Principal John Gordon initiated a program whereby students are chosen by their teachers to serve as PALs on a weekly basis. As PALs, they are responsible for leading the entire student body in repeating the Pledge of Allegiance via the school's intercom on Mondays and Fridays during home room.
Congratulations to fifth grader, Joe Gilkey for being selected as the first Pledge of Allegiance Leader (PAL) at Morrison. Other students who have been PALs include those listed below. We invite you to visit our web page frequently for weekly updates.
