Promoting Peace at Mills Pond

Throughout the week of Oct. 1, Mills Pond Elementary School held a Peace Week celebration, spearheaded by the school’s Shanti Fund Committee to recognize the work of Mahatma Gandhi.

Themed “Peace Is Cool,” the activities kicked off with different mindfulness activities such as yoga, breathing, stretching and relaxation techniques. In the lobby, a peace graffiti bulletin board was created so students could write what peace means to them. Each morning announcement throughout the week featured a different peace quote read by the fourth-graders.

On Oct. 4, the school joined together for a peace walk, dressed in white shirts and blue jeans. To conclude the week’s activities, the students created a chalk mural on the school’s sidewalk featuring different peace quotes.
