Montessori Country Day School Students celebrated International Day of Peace on Thursday, September 21st as a school community. Elementary students shared Love Cake with families as they arrived for school in the morning. Elementary and kindergarten students made the delicious cake with Ms. Blanco before preparing them to be served to the parents in our community. Faculty, staff and students joined together around the peace pole in celebration of peace on our campus and in support of peace in our local and global communities. Ms. Blanco and Ms. Montoney led the group in songs pertaining to peace. Mrs. Monteleone read a book about peace before unveiling the beautiful peace banner created by students across the campus. A moment of silence, shared with children around the world, was held at noon. In the afternoon, children gathered around the peace pole with rainbow-colored pinwheels that posted peaceful messages on their stem.
