ROCKFORD, Mich (WZZM) -- Three days after the mass shooting in Connecticut, a West Michigan school is hanging flags to remember the victims.
Workers placed 26 flags on the Rockford Freshmen Center Building on Monday.
Each flag is in memory of a child or adult killed in the shooting at Sandy Hooks Elementary in Connecticut.
Principal Doug VanderJagt says it's their way of supporting the families of the victims.
"Our student body wanted to show some kind of support for the town and for the kids, what they're going through and what they're going to continue to go through for years to come," says VanderJagt. "This is a small gesture we could do."
