Cumberland Academy of Georgia students are able to experience a wide variety of academics and life skills. In addition to academic studies, students are encouraged to demonstrate gratitude, respect and a sense of community. Cumberland announced today a special ceremony that will take place on September 11 that is designed to allow students to express their respect for their community and their country. In remembrance of the anniversary of the tragedy of September 11, 2001, Cumberland will provide students with an opportunity to hold a flag retiring ceremony at the Cumberland Academy of Georgia.
At the ceremony, students will assist in the retiring of over one hundred flags procured throughout the Sandy Springs area. The flag retirement ceremony will be attended by Mayor of Sandy Springs Eva Galambos, Sandy Springs firefighters, as well as several other dignitaries. Students from Cumberland will assist in the ceremony as it will be a visual representation of respect for our country. Additionally, the school will invite the community to attend and share the ceremony.
“The flag retirement ceremony will provide a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our American flag and our great country, and the ceremony has special significance since it will take place on September 11,” said Don Sasso, principal of Cumberland Academy of Georgia.
