On September 21, 2018, Mrs. Pagano’s class celebrated The International Day of Peace. The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is a holiday observed annually on September 21st. It is dedicated to world peace.
To celebrate this day, Mrs. Pagano taught a lesson on peace. The students enjoyed watching a video about learning how to be peaceful and singing a song about peace. They then brainstormed ways that we show peace at Hudson Maxim School, such as being bucket fillers, sharing, and using kind words.
Finally the students took part in Pinwheels for Peace. This is an initiative for schools to create and display pinwheels that signal world peace. A pinwheel is a childhood symbol – it reminds us of a time when things were simple, joyful and peaceful. The spinning of the pinwheels in the wind will spread thoughts and feelings about peace throughout the country, the world!
Our class was one of many worldwide who participated. Mrs. Pagano and Mrs. Miller, our class paraprofessional, helped students to assemble pinwheels and then the children placed them outside to spread peace. The whole school got to see them as they left the building for the day. We also will display them on Back to School night for the parents to enjoy.
