Flag raisings kick off first full school week

Alta-Aurelia Elementary and Middle School students started the new school year with a salute to the flag and enjoyed sitting  in an U.S. Army wrecker vehicle.

Community members joined in Aug. 27 as the school held its traditional flag ceremony. This year was somewhat different as the flag went to half-staff in honor of the death of U.S. Senator John McCain.
