BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio — During tough times, everyone needs a little smile, and that’s just what one group of students that are home from school hope to accomplish with what has a become a part of their daily routine.
A group of students who attend Royalview Elementary has gone outside every morning, rain or shine, to say the Pledge of Allegiance since their school is shut down.
LOVE: Families & kiddos in Broadview Heights come out and do the Pledge of Allegiance together every morning while schools are shut down. Social distancing done right!— Homa Bash (@HomaBashWEWS) March 20, 2020

The idea to do this was started by Kressler Family, who started going outside at 9 a.m. to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
Mary Beth Kressler, mother of four children, said she started this because “in times like these, we have to remember what’s important.”
