International Day of Peace

If we are among the men of good will who yearn for peace, we must lay the foundation for peace ourselves, by working for the social world of the child.
— Dr. Maria Montessori

Today we joined a group of schools around the world participating in the International Day of Peace by singing "Light a Candle for Peace" in unison at our designated time.

Our celebration was held in honor of our beloved Mr. Skip and we also hope it will symbolize a new beginning, or a moment of peace, in our troubled times. Please enjoy the beautiful video and photos taken during our special event this morning.

Mr. Skip

It is with saddened hearts we share that Mr. Skip passed this weekend.  Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers at this time. Mr. Skip’s family asked that we pass on this note to his La Print family regarding services:

"We are planning a "Sweet Remembrance" for our sweet Skip at the Unitarian Church of Baton Rouge  on Goodwood Blvd this Wednesday evening, August 24th, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. Please bring any stories, pictures and remembrances and, if you feel so inclined, a small portion of something sweet to share.

Please share the post about the remembrance for Skip with anyone you know that also knows him."

Scrapbook for Mr. Skip
