World Cultures Celebrates - World Peace Day On September 21st

On Wednesday, September 21st the world will be celebrating International Peace Day. This day was founded in 1999 by a filmmaker named Jeremy Gilley. His goal was to have a global day of peace and non-violence, where countries all over the world agree to get along.
 
The World Cultures teachers will be working on a “Peace Quilt” that will contain a “patch” made by each of the students signifying what peace means to them.  The quilt will be displayed in the school on September 21st along with a Peace Pledge that the students will recite.
 
We are asking you and your students wear blue on Wednesday, September 21st in honor of International Peace Day.  We have also attached a copy of the “Peace Pledge” for you.
