Her are my Pinwheels for peace in my window, they were for International Peace Day (September 21) and here are the students {{popup pinwheels.gif pinwheels 550×413}}pinwheels. It was a lot of fun to watch them plant them outside or on the board and write about what peace means to them.
We have a “Peace Maker” of the month, September was {{popup peacemonth.gif peacemonth 550×387}}John F. Kennedy and we will get up October who is Jimmy Carter. This bulletin board is one of the kids favorites, it is of the {{popup playgroundpics.gif playgroundpics 550×399}}playground when we catch them being good. They love to look for their picture. We just started a new incentive program for the buses…it is called {{popup peacefulride.gif peacefulride 550×405}}peaceful ride. Then we also have our playground {{popup playground.gif playground 550×403}}rules bulletin board.
While we are at it…I also do an attendance bulletin board and charms for perfect attendance. The kids love to count the classroom stars for class {{popup attendance.gif attendance 550×425}}attendance (see all the little finger prints). I put up the stars each day. Last thing, we had an assembly today- the PTA is selling wrapping paper- they had some of us model outfits made of {{popup wrappingpaper.gif wrappingpaper 550×316}}wrapping paper. I was taking mine off when they wanted a picture- oh the things we do!

    The really fun part is if you come up with an idea (peace) the school and principal embarce it which makes it so much stronger a message for the kids- and we do have fun in the process.

    I was trying to share this idea with Bernice- i thought it would be cool to make with all of the classes and the sign with the hands connecting for the babies and then put it out on her lawn that day. Can you send me any pictures you have related to this so I can share the ideas with her. I thought it was terrific and fits with all the character work she is doing with the kids. THANKS

    You have such a great school and they teach the kids so many wonderful ways to behave and live. Our school should take a class from your school. Keep it up. Mom Loved your paper outfit!
