WUTR Films Westmoreland Road Fifth Graders Reciting Pledge of Allegiance

On Oct. 10, local TV news station WUTR visited Westmoreland Road Elementary School to film a special segment meant to promote patriotism throughout schools.

Fifth grade students at Westmoreland Road Elementary were filmed outside the school as they recited The Pledge of Allegiance and held onto a large American flag. As they recited it, a photographer from the news station filmed it from on top of the school’s roof.

This new initiative by WUTR features elementary students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade reciting The Pledge of Allegiance, and the segments will be broadcast twice each day on ABC’s Good Morning America. They will air Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., throughout the school year.

Thank you to WUTR for choosing Westmoreland Road fifth graders to show off their patriotism!
