DO THEY STILL TEACH PATRIOTIC SONGS TO KIDS?

I just began teaching 1st grade at a year round school. Its my first time teaching 1st grade so I am researching the California standards right now. Social Studies Standard 1.3 for 1st grade is this:
Students know and understand the symbols, icons, and traditions of the United States that provide continuity and a sense of community across time. 1.3.1 Recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing songs that express American ideals (e.g., "My Country 'Tis of Thee"). 1.3.2 Understand the significance of our national holidays and the heroism and achievements of the people associated with them. 1.3.3 Identify American symbols, landmarks, and essential documents, such as the flag, bald eagle, Statue of Liberty, U.S. Constitution, and Declaration of Independence, and know the people and events associated with them.

In education their are needs of the learner and needs of society. Needs of Society include the need to build patriotism and pride for the country in which the student lives. They do this around the world. There are of course, the crazies who don't like it, but too bad, it's a California standard and I'm gonna play my piano and teach my patriotic songs to the class!
