Flag Ceremony Celebrates First Day of School

Honor guard

Lincoln Hall ceremony

Students and staff celebrated the start of school on Wednesday, Aug. 20., with flag-raising ceremonies at Lincoln Hall and Rutledge Hall. Members of the Lincolnwood police and fire departments served as the honor guard. 

The flag-raising ceremony, started by Dr. Weiss five years ago, is a great way to kick off the year for students, staff and parents! We greatly appreciate the police and fire departments for providing an honor guard for both ceremonies.

At Todd Hall, 1st and 2nd graders started on Wednesday, and kindergarteners start Thursday Aug. 20.
