Students at Neary had a special assignment last week. Dressed in red, white, and blue, they lined up on the lawn outside the school to create what Principal Linda Murdock called a “living flag.” Fifth graders at the school did the math and created a plan for which classes would dress in which colors.

A photo of the flag was taken by Neary teacher David Stubbart. Murdock said the photo will be used to make a thank-you card to send with troops along with candy from Neary’s annual candy drive.
