Pinwheels for Peace

Design Your Own Jumbo Paper Pinwheels (2 dz)International Peace Day is on September 21st.

To celebrate and spread the message at our school, my school counseling colleague and I are collaborating with the art teachers to facilitate the Pinwheels for Peace Project at our school.

Pinwheels for Peace is a visual and artistic way to celebrate International Peace Day. Students create pinwheels to display at the school as a symbol of peace. At my school, students in third through eighth grade will be making pinwheels to display. A free template to create your own pinwheels is available on the Pinwheels for Peace website.

Instead of celebrating International Peace day on the actual day, we are having a "Peace Week" at our school to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and to spread the message of peace at our school.

We plan to display the student created Pinwheels for Peace in the lawn of our school in time for our open house.
