  • Veterans Day Flag Ceremony and Band Performance

    Troop 100 | Wishkah Publishing

    In conjunction with Veteran’s Day, Wishkah Valley School hosted Boys Scout Troop 100 in a flag retirement ceremony on Friday morning.


    Jack Roman, of Troop 100, came to the school as a guest speaker and spoke in front of the student body, staff and administration about the flag ceremony itself. He talked about the traditions of the retirement ceremony -- changing the flag with a new one and respectfully burning the old one. Mrs. Patterson played “Taps” as the old flag was placed inside a small fire pit to be disposed of, and a new one was replaced by the troops and raised into place.


    The school then recited the Pledge of Allegiance and observed a moment of silence for all veterans.

    On Monday, Wishkah students celebrated Veterans Day again, with the first through fifth graders singing patriotic songs. The were followed by the High School Band performed on buckets; the performance was called fresh trash. The songs performed by the Elementary School classes were "God Bless The USA" and "Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue."
