Flag Teams

Each year 6th graders have the privilege of putting up and taking down the flags at Mart Elementary.  

Students volunteer and are put on "flag teams".  This is a year long responsibility with rotations from week to week, and morning/afternoon teams.

Flag teams learn how to put the American flag on top (stars up), followed by the Texas flag (white = peace - on top).  If you see a flag upside down, it's because we are learning.
Afternoon teams learn how to take down and properly fold flags in preparation for the next day.

This is an honor and we appreciate students taking time to care for our standard/symbol of our nation /  "Old Glory".  

Mart ISD appreciates Mrs. Kaufmann, 5th and 6th grade Social Studies teacher, for organizing our flag teams each year.
