Perry Flag Raising Ceremony

On Friday, October 12, the Cub Scouts from Pack 265, Perry’s Bright Futures Scoutreach group, performed a flag raising ceremony in order to install a new school flag.  Through Home Depot, the new flag was graciously donated by the family of Mia Matute-Juarez from Ms. LaRonde’s kindergarten classroom.  The flag is now proudly displayed in front of the school.  Along with Perry Principal, Lindsey Segrist and assisted by their Cub Scout leaders, Mr. Love and Mrs. Love, these students demonstrated the Cub Scout Salute, sang their Scout Laws song and led the Pledge of Allegiance for onlookers from Mrs. Wyderko’s first-grade classroom.
