Together for Peace

Baylis Elementary School recently celebrated International Day of Peace, a day established by the United Nations to promote global unity in conjunction with the U.N. General Assembly.

This year’s theme is “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.”  In recognition of the day, Barbara Conover’s third-graders were invited to write poems expressing their thoughts and create posters that demonstrate what peace means to them. 

Through their social studies curriculum, students explore “Communities Around the World,” embracing and gaining an understanding and respect for other cultures. As a result, Baylis students began the school year enjoying togetherness and a smile.
