We celebrated our fourth annual International Peace Day on Thursday, Sept. 21. This is a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. Peace Day is celebrated all across the world in many different ways. The class spent the last couple of weeks reading books on what we think Peace is, talking about how we can show Peace and practicing Peace in the classroom. The children learned a song, “Light a Candle for Love” and created peace messages and peace pinwheels. On Sept. 21, at precisely noon, the students, staff and families at Red Oak gathered around their peace pole in the play yard; sang “Light a Candle for Love,” sent out their messages of peace and planted their peace pinwheels in the ground. We concluded our Peace ceremony with a dedication of our new Peace Bridge to our children attending now and to all others who will be part of our Red Oak family.
