September 21st - International Day of Peace

Enrichment art students created, banners, posters, pinwheels and bulletin boards to celebrate the 2011 "International Day of Peace" This day is always celebrated on September 21st every year around the world.

During morning announcements the video "We Are the World" was played and students go to be a part of a day that sometimes gets overlooked. I remember when this song first came out and what impact it had on me as a child. I hope it impacted others today, too.

Banner hung outside the school - created by 5th grade

Billboard - created by 3rd grade

I love this day because I think we should always rally for "PEACE" within our world!
