What does peace mean to you?

In honor of International Peace Day on September 21, the ES Library partnered with the Service Learning team to create a community project centered around the theme of peace. Students and teachers were invited to create a peace flag to add to our community installation.

As class groups we shared The Peace Book by Todd Parr and I Am Peace by Susan Verde and Peter Reynolds. The books gave us inspiration for designing our peace flags. If you haven't already, p
lease visit us to design your very own flag to show what peace means to you. We will display the peace flags in the library. All contributions are welcome.

This month our library also added a new learning space. The Peaceful Place is a quiet, reflective zone for learners. Soft lighting, over-sized bean bags and rocking chairs help set the mood for peace and quiet. Our students and teachers have enjoyed stopping in to take some time and space for themselves.

A highlight of our Peace Day celebrations was sharing I Am Peace set to music by Emily Arrow. Mr. Advento and Ms. Strate even joined in for some of the peaceful fun!
