Southwest School celebrates International Day of Peace

Southwest students celebrated the International Day of Peace on September 21st. Peace Day was established in 1981 by the United Nations. It is celebrated around the world and has a goal for, “all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.” Students and staff wore tie-dye and engaged in a variety of activities to spread the word about Peace Day. Students made “Pinwheels for Peace” and planted them in the garden out front of the school.
