‘Famous’ visitor teaches flag etiquette

Staff reports
Prairie View Third Grade students and Betsy Ross (Judy Twete) with the flags donated by Prudential Financial, Inc.

Betsy Ross recently visited Prairie View Elementary students wearing her red, white and blue dress and holding the American flag while she demonstrated appropriate flag etiquette.  The theme of the September assembly was Respect for our Flag, in honor of Constitution Day, which was September 17.  This topic is so important to Betsy Ross that she was able to get Prudential Financial, Inc. to donate a flag for each student to bring home so they could share this important topic with their families.
