Pinwheels for Peace 2011

I was so happy the rain finally stopped long enough for us to have our Pinwheels for Peace Ceremony at Rossview Elementary School. This was a new and exciting experience for me, and I am so glad our school is a part of something that is internationally recognized.
The students have been working on many projects about Peace and have each made their own Pinwheel. Our entire school (over 800 people) went outside, sang "All you need is Love" (with sign language) and then placed our pinwheels in the ground for a massive outdoor art installation. It was SO EXCITING! Words just can't describe....

Peace Bulletin Board

In celebration of International Peace Day on September 21st. Here is the bulletin board I put together to display students "Peace Doves". Each student decorated a dove and wrote their thoughts on what brings them peace. It was fun to read their comments. My personal favorite was "I find peace by playing poker." :)
