Pinwheels for Peace

The Character in Action Team is excited to announce that the Tri Valley Elementary School students plan to take part in an international art and literacy project, Pinwheels for Peace, by "planting" pinwheels with messages of peace.  Students are creating their own pinwheels with pictures and messages of peace.  

On September 21st, the students will be arranging their pinwheels in designated areas that will, in the end, create our Tri Valley Elementary Peace Sign.  Pictures will be taken of the Peace Sign and will be shared with the world.  During the morning announcements on Friday, the students will listen to the Peace Day Pledge.

Peace Day Pledge

We are growing up.

We are many colors of skin.

We are languages.

We aremany ages and sizes.

We are many countries...

But we are one earth...

We are growing up together,

So we must each join our

Hearts and lives together

And live as one family.
