Nisswa Elementary School fourth-graders literally marched, led by the Nisswa American Legion Color Guard, from their school to the Nisswa American Legion on Thursday, Oct. 22, where they learned about flag etiquette.

At the Legion, students watched a flag retirement ceremony, followed by a video about the history of the various forms of the flag of the United States and why the flag is shown respect. Finally, students received instructions and practice in properly folding flags for storage.
