On January 22, 2020, the Upper Elementary and Middle School students dedicated The Homestead School as an International Peace Site. This school wide celebration featured drumming, songs of peace, and reciting the following Peace Actions:
Seek peace within yourself and others. Reach out in service.
Protect the environment.
Be a responsible citizen of the world.
Peace Education is practiced by Montessori schools all over the globe. We are planting seeds to create a culture of peace and non-violence in our school, home, and community. At the end of the ceremony, with drums echoing in their ears, the students cheered and spread out across the campus carrying peace in their hearts and actions.
