Wilmington Montessori School (WMS) celebrated the United Nations International Day of Peace
with a school-wide Peace Festival
– including participation in the international Chalk 4 Peace program
, a moment of silence and reflection, and collectively singing a song on peace – a song also sung by Montessori schools around the world. Throughout the morning, students and faculty drew their reflections on peace around the campus grounds, as a visual reminder of the school’s commitment to being a peaceful community. Toddlers and preschoolers joined with elementary age students in creating this chalk art work and came together as a whole school community to reflect on the concept of peace around the world and in our community.
