Sioux Falls schools might expand flag observance

Posted:

       SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) _ An Army veteran from Sioux Falls wants all schools in the city to make an observance of the U.S. flag a part of every day.
 
       Students at elementary schools in the district recite the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. At middle schools and high schools, the pledge or some other patriotic activity takes place only during schoolwide assemblies.
 
       Veteran James Booman tells the Argus Leader that he thinks students at all grade levels should be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
 
       The school board is considering requiring the pledge daily at middle schools, but not at high schools. Board member Todd Thoelke cites the flurry of activity that takes place at a high school early in the morning.
