International Peace Day

"Peace Day was established by the United Nations in 1981 in an effort to encourage the world to work as one for worldwide peace. The 5th graders commemorated the day by making peace cranes and signs that will be exchanged with others in areas across the world. Students were challenged to envision a world of peace and how we can work towards achieving such. We hope that Wednesday's awareness will instill each student with a gaining acceptance and tolerance for cultures different than our own. Additionally, we hope that we can all strive for an intercultural connection."
