In early-fall, all of our Montessori schools – Brockman, Caughman Road, Gadsden and Logan elementary schools and W.G. Sanders Middle School – participated in the International Day of Peace. They were joined by students from our language immersion program at Carver-Lyon Elementary.

Students led the International Day of Peace program with instrumental and vocal music, recitations, skits and attire representative of the many countries represented by students and staff in Richland One.

At the conclusion of the program, the focus was placed on the peace pole which was inscribed with the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in multiple languages. Replicas of the peace pole were to be placed at each of the schools.

Today, the peace pole was installed at the Stevenson Administration Building. This was a pleasant sight as staff paused to view and reflect.

In any languages, may peace prevail.
