Students at Cherry Lane celebrated Flag Day on June 14 by participating in a patriotic schoolwide assembly. Dressed in red, white and blue, the students and their teachers gathered outside the school to sing songs underneath the flagpole, and were treated to a remarkable rendition of Taps by Edward Muller, a neighbor of Cherry Lane for more than 50 years. The event was designed to teach students about the importance of respecting the American flag and the significance of its components.
