    Do you have American Flags that need to be retired?
    Well, you are in luck, Cadet Sean Bowker has completed his Eagle Scout project and his flag retirement drop-off box is now fully operational. It sits in the foyer of the school and our JROTC program will help monitor it for the future. So bring your frayed, ripped, color-faded flags to school so they can be retired properly. We will be holding a Flag Retirement Ceremony in 2nd Semester.
