Gaines Academy 5th Grade Flag Leadership

The 5th GRADE FLAG LEADERSHIP INIATIVE was started based on the administration’s vision to create a system in which a daily ceremony occurs of raising and lowering the American and FL State flag daily. Identifying 5th grade as the chosen grade for this initative would build leadership capacity with our older elementary age students. Students were taught the proper procedures for folding and caring for the flags.

We are very thankful to have our very own Veteran Mr. Jeffrey Johnson, teacher at SGA teach our 5th grade student leaders important facts about our American flag.  5th grade teachers chose the 5th graders based on their positive character and willingness to be a model student leader in the classroom.
