VIDEO: Peace Day at Kaechele

On Friday, 9/21/18, our school celebrated International Peace Day by participating in a school wide assembly and recognizing ways to be peaceful.  When we find our own sense of peace, then we can share it with others. At KES we show our support for peace by being kind, loving, compassionate, and empathetic with each other.  In past years we have used the symbol of the pinwheel. This year our entire student body created a heart, and each KES student will receive a copy of the heart. Students were challenged by Mrs. Patterson to support peace in our school and community by sharing this picture with an individual person, a group of people or perhaps in a local community organization.  Students can write a note on the heart, color a picture, or just post the picture somewhere. The purpose of this activity is to encourage our students to think about ways to share peace within their community and to also advertise that KES students promote peace. We look forward to hearing how KES hearts have made a difference in our community. Click on the picture to check out a time lapse video of our coyotes creating our heart for peace.
