Winners of this year’s Sylvan Avenue Elementary School poem and poster contest were announced during the Flag Day ceremony.

Sylvan Avenue Elementary School was awash in red, white and blue as students and staff paid tribute to the American flag in honor of Flag Day.

During the ceremonial Flag Day program, students learned about the holiday’s history, the significance of the flag folding process and the importance of honoring the nation’s symbol.

Students demonstrated their patriotism and national pride by joining together to sing patriotic songs and by awarding winners of a Flag Day poetry and poster contest.

They were assisted by members of the AM Vets Post 111 from Patchogue in raising the flag, and Sylvan’s Boy and Girl Scouts presented a visual play describing the process of “making” an American flag.
