Pinwheels for Peace

“Pinwheels for Peace” is an international environmental art piece which is celebrated on Sept. 21 each year. Children all over the world write their wishes and feelings about peace on these wheels and place them in the ground as a group project. Conceptually, their ideas are united on this day with children around the world.

On Sept. 27, John Street School students placed red, white and blue pinwheels spelling the word "PEACE" on the front lawn in recognition of "Whirled Peace Day." Inside the Main Lobby, students added their special "peace-related" artwork to create a beautiful display.

Here is a video from the day:
