Carry the Load - FLAG Club
New Club - Carry the Load which sponsors F.L.A.G
WHY A F.L.A.G. CLUB? The acronym F.L.A.G. stands for “Fly, Lower, And Gather.” F.L.A.G. Clubs are open to students who are enrolled in the 4th through 12th grades.
The flag of the United States—also known as “Old Glory”—represents everything that is good about this country. It represents Freedom. It represents Courage. It represents Hope.
Red represents Hardiness and Valor.
White represents Purity and Innocence.
Blue represents Vigilance.
Countless men and women have served under her colors, and countless men and women have died defending her.
The F.L.A.G. Club program was created to educate our youth of the history of the American Flag and the sacrifices made to honor it.
F.L.A.G. Club students will learn how to properly Fly, Lower, And Gather the United States Flag
Through F.L.A.G. Club meetings and activities during the school year, students will learn proper etiquette of the United States Flag learn important information about our nation’s heroes and their sacrifices for our freedom learn the history of our Flag and many patriotic holidays.
Ronald Reagan, who served as the 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989, once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” We must teach each generation of children both the value and the price of freedom. We must instill in them a patriotic spirit, and a proper respect for our country, our flag, and the sacrifices that have been made by men and women throughout this country’s history in order to protect our freedom. That’s why F.L.A.G. Clubs are important!
We will meet for about 30 min or so to introduce the club, fill out membership forms and talk about what the club is going to offer for this school year.. then later we will put out a schedule of meeting dates, times and location for the rest of the year..
Students will have an award ceremony at the end for those that complete their projects....

Coin Club - Limit of 15 students ages 9 and up - We will meet monthly the 1st Fridays of each month from 12-1pm
The cost of the club is only $10.00 per student - this is to cover the cost of coins and educational materials, handouts and more....
Sadly this year the Coin show will not be held at the Fredburg Expo but they hope to return in 2021... I am working with my contact to get coins for our coin group...He is reaching out to those that have given in the past and he is sending me a box of coins up before the club meets....
Each month the kids will take home 5 or more coins and their job is to research the coin and then when we meet up the next month we will do a show and tell at the beginning of each meeting so the students can show their coin and tell us about the coin.. (the coins I get are American coins, foreign coins, old coins and more)....
We will be doing one or two zoom meetings with Mr John throughout the club and he will teach a class on coins and money....
This is a fun club - by the time the club ends kids will go home with 30+ coins, educational materials and more...
