The Lower Elementary students celebrated International Day of Peace with literature, group discussion, and creative expression. Each student created a beautiful piece of stained glass art.
The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on September 21st. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.
In Commemoration of the International Peace Day, the Upper Elementary community began their day with a peace gathering. The children explored the Montessori Timeline of Peace and Human Rights, listened to the story of Deganawida – a Native American peacemaker, and painted peace symbols on rocks.
