International Day of Peace

 

 Each year on the school day closest to September 21st, we observe the International Day of Peace with our own celebrations and traditions.  Known as “Peace Day,” this day was established by unanimous United Nations resolution in 1981.   The annual theme for Peace Day changes each year.

Traditionally, all Meadow students gather as a community and discuss what peace means with speeches, music, and song.

You can celebrate Peace Day at home by singing Light a Candle for Peace, and discussing the family Peace Pledge and how your family can adopt the principles of peace and nonviolence at home.  There are many ways you can get involved at the local level.  Looking for more information on The International Day of Peace?  Visit internationaldayofpeace.org.

Happy International Day of Peace!
