We celebrated Peace Week through advisory, assembly and with lunchtime Peace videos. Each advisory created a mandala that is made up of who we are as individuals and the similarities that we found among us, as well as celebrating our diversity here at AES.
Day 1: Peace in who I am–Celebrating How We’re Different
Students took some time to reflect on and celebrate what makes us, us! Students rotated around to 8 different stations and wrote down their personal response to each of the questions on the white paper cutout. The focus was to celebrate our individuality–what’s special and different about each of us.
Students reflected on the question: How does recognizing, appreciating, and celebrating our diversity help promote peace in our middle school?
Students also came dressed up for school in international clothes. Our goal – to celebrate our diversity.
