Merrick Avenue Middle School installed its Flag Field of Honor on Nov. 5 in recognition of veterans — a new tradition for the school.

The flags will be flown between through Dec. 10 as a tribute to veterans. The $2,450 in proceeds from the sponsorships will be donated to Honor Flight Long Islandfor veterans, and the Bellmore-Merrick Community Cupboard.

“This is a wonderful way for our students to be able to reflect on the contributions of our veterans and to take action to honor them,” said Christina Cone, a district social studies chairperson.“It is also a meaningful way for the entire communityto be able to take part and show pride in our service men and women.”

Veteran Chris Levi spoke to attendees.

"I thought his stories were very interesting, especially how he called himself the terminator,” explained eighth-grade Nicolo Maltese. “I was happy to put up the flags for the community.”

The event was organized by teacher Denise Schleith.

“I wanted to involve my students so that they could appreciate the sacrifices that our veterans have made to give us the opportunities and freedoms we have today,” she explained.

The Mack Family, who have a seventh-grade student attending Merrick Avenue Middle School secured supplies, storage and materials in order to aid in this field coming to fruition. The Forie, Galvin, Gubba, Bloch, Demato and Maltese families also volunteered. Lou Cila designed the lawn layout and Roma Pizza donated food for after the installation.
