Sacramento City Unified School District, CA.
THE FOLLOWING IS THE FULL TEXT OF THIS DOCUMENT: Each day, the students of James W. Marshall Elementary School, Sacramento City Unified School District, assemble for a flag-salute ceremony in the courtyard in front of the school. Actually, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance is the closing part of this daily activity, for it is at this assembly that students are recognized for good citizenship at school and in the community. Such activities as picking up trash on the school grounds, acting as school monitors, and specific improvements in scholarship and behavior are recognized and rewarded. Students receive a pencil with the school name on it. Frequently, students are recognized at this assembly for participation in, or winning places in, worthwhile activities in the community, too. This short, but very important, ceremony helps develop in the student body of almost 700 students a sense of unity in purpose and of pride in doing well by helping others. At the close of the assembly, one student who has been assisting the principal leads the assembled group in the Pledge of Allegiance, and then students and teachers go to their classes. This document was selected by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Task Force on Public Confidence as descriptive of a promising practice or exemplary project worthy of highlighting for the California educational community.
