Celebrating Peace

September 25th, 2013

In recognition of the “International Day of Peace” Cornerspring Montessori School participated in its sixth annual peace celebration on Monday, September 23rd. The children began with a circle gathering outside where they shared in a moment of silence, sang songs and listened to a story about peace. Marc Archambault from White Doves of Maine released one of his beautiful doves in honor of this day. The school ended their celebration with a peace parade through the athenahealth complex. Children marched with handmade doves and signs signifying peace followed in a procession lead by an enormous handmade cloth dove. “The International Day of Peace or Peace Day provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date.” For more information on the UN International Day of Peace you can go to www.internationaldayofpeace.org
