Our flag was still there...and so is our Pledge

Graham participated in a mass singing of the National Anthem yesterday as a part of the nationwide effort called "The National Anthem Project." At 9:00 in their respective time zones, schools across the country joined in the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner." We have the ability to plug a CD player into our intercom system, so the students all over the school were able to sing along with a full accompaniment.

On another note, there may be questions about a recent ruling in California and the impact it will have on our recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. In a word, the answer is "none." Here is the position of the Alabama State Department of Education:

Today's ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will have no impact on Alabama Public Schools. Until the U.S. Supreme Court rules differently, nothing regarding this matter will change in Alabama. Bottom Line: The Pledge of Allegiance can continue to be recited in Alabama Public Schools.
