RUSD Schools Celebrate International Day of Peace


Students at Jefferson Lighthouse Elementary School and Goodland Elementary School, including the Montessori program, celebrated the Day of Peace with an outdoor event where students decorated pinwheels, sang songs and drew what peace means to them in an effort to promote peace at their school and in their lives. 

Since 1981, the United Nations has annually called for a Day of Peace around the world on September 21. The day is devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
