Students of Marin Primary & Middle School Form Peace Sign

LARKSPUR, Calif. -Marin Primary & Middle School joined millions of children in schools around the world to celebrate the International Day of Peace, Thursday, Sept. 21. Students in the preschool Jungle class created peace necklaces for teachers to wear; the Junior Kindergarten class made a laminated peace quilt; and students throughout the school designed posters or wrote about their vision for peace. The school gathered on the playground to stand in formation as a peace sign, while the Head of School, Julie Elam read the United Nations proclamation. Students, faculty and staff chanted "May Peace Prevail on Earth," and sang a Russian peace song.
The United Nations General Assembly designated September 21st as the International Day of Peace, a day of cease-fire and peace-building activities to be celebrated around the world. On Peace Day each year, young people in countries all over the world take a Minute of Silence at 12 noon in their time zone to support the United Nations in its mission of world peace.

Marin Primary & Middle School, founded in 1975, is a Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade co-educational independent school located in Marin County, California. The school's curriculum is built around "teams of teaching." They believe education requires an integrated and interactive approach, inside the classroom and beyond - from physical education to science and technology, the arts and languages to outdoor education.
