Franklin Elementary School Celebrates the International Day of Peace

The International Day of Peace is an International event that is observed each year by nations all across the world. The event is commemorated on 21st of September each year. It is a day that was set aside by the United Nations General assembly for everyone around the world to devote to keeping peace, despite any differences they may have, as well as play a part in building a peace culture that will last for generations to come. We will celebrate this event on Friday September 20th . Students will recite a “Peace Pledge” and write a short essay on what peace means to them. We ask that students and staff wear blue on this day in honor of International Peace Day.
