Every year at Johnson Upper Elementary we celebrate Peace Day which is September 21st. This is a good chance for the teachers and myself to talk to the students about what peace is and how it can be shown in our school community. This year 5th graders made some wonderful peace rocks that will be showcased in our peace garden here at Johnson. In the garden there are trees, bird feeders and now a nice rock garden that surrounds a peace pole.
Sixth graders at Johnson created pinwheels with words and colors they thought were peaceful. The students really stepped up to the plate this year and helped each other make the pinwheels! The pinwheels will be on display in front of the school during the Fund Run October 9th. These beautiful creations will be coming home shortly after, the weather is too fickle this year to leave them out for long! (More pictures to come once they are set up for the Fund Run.
