Accompsett Middle School Students Participate In Flags For Freedom Program

Flags fly high at Memorial Day tribute 

This Memorial Day, more than 100 American flags are displayed at the entrance to Accompsett Middle School in the Smithtown Central School District thanks to a fundraising effort coordinated by the school to benefit America’s VetDogs and Boots on the Ground. Accompsett Middle School in the Smithtown Central School District is honoring its local military heroes this Memorial Day by participating in a Flags for Freedom program.

Coordinated by the school’s Parent-Teacher Association, American flags were sold in honor or memory of loved ones who have or are serving in the military. 

For a $25 donation, flags were available for purchase throughout the month. In total, the school sold 125 flags. 

During the first weekend in May, Accompsett Middle School Honor Society students and PTA parents worked to get the ground ready to display the flags, cleaning up the flower beds, drilling the holes for the flags and cutting the PVC piping. The flags are currently on display at Accompsett Middle School to add a special touch to the ground for Memorial Day.  

Profits from the sale of the flags will be donated to America’s VetDogs, a local nonprofit that helps veterans with service dogs, and Boots on the Ground, a local veterans activity center.
