Peace Rocks Highlighted at the UMC Conference

| Cathy Bachman |

This weekend much of our staff attended the 20th Utah Montessori Council conference. The conference is for our Montessori teachers to share ideas, learn, socialize and be inspired. Schools were invited to share their peace project and our Amanda was invited to speak.

Amanda shared our Peace Rock story and arranged a Peace Rock Project display at the UMC conference.  “This past fall, our staff and students (infants through upper elementary) painted peace rocks.  Each class placed them in front of our school during our Peace Parade on International Day of Peace.  We placed signs inviting the greater community to take a rock of peace.  The idea was to spread messages of peace into our community.”

Amanda’s display featured rocks painted by our staff and students and information about our peace project.  She invited the UMC attendees to make a peace rock or take one decorated by our school staff and students.
