Today is International Day of Peace

| Cathy Bachman |

The International Day of Peace was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1981. It was declared a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace.

Montessori Community School celebrated International Day of Peace in our Greenspace.  Our Infant Teacher, Carmen, read the book I Am Peace by Susan Verde.  Our Head of School Catherine Mathews led us in singing Light a Candle for Peace while incorporating sign language. Our Upper Elementary students headed up our Peace walk around the school with their hand crafted rainbow-winged Peace Dove. 

International Day of Peace at Montessori Community School

This week the students spent time creating their own unique peace rock and peace flag. The peace rocks were placed in the front of the school with a sign inviting the greater community to take one home with them.  We started this tradition last year, as a way of sending out messages of peace. 

The peace flags have been a longtime tradition at MCS. Annually you can see the beautiful flags blowing in the breeze along the fence in front of our school. May peace be with you on this wonderful day!
