Pinwheels for Peace

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace.  The Pinwheels for Peace project was created to coincide with the International Day of Peace (or Peace Day).  Each year, on this day, millions of people around the world display pinwheels of all different sizes as a public visual representation of our hope for “whirled” peace.

Once again, our school is proud to participate in this wonderful project.  Many thanks to Mrs. Katz, our art teacher, for creating the beautiful display on our school’s front lawn.  With her help, each child in our school made a pinwheel with words of peace and harmony written on it.  Then they placed the pinwheels in front of our school.  With this simple act, we join many schools and people around the world in our hope for world peace.
