International Day of Peace


International Day of Peace

Friday, September 21st


Next Friday, September 21 is the International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”).  Peace Day is observed around the world each year on September 21. Established in 1981 by a unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.  To celebrate this wonderful day, Kincaid staff and students are participating in several activities.


  • Teachers will be delivering lessons and activities to promote kindness and acceptance.
  • Students and staff are encouraged to wear “Peace” themed clothes to school. Break out your tye-dyes, headbands, bellbottoms etc. to celebrate peace at Kincaid and in our larger world.
  • Rausch will create “Pinwheels for Peace” with all students to display outside on the front lawn.  These pinwheels will be put out on the afternoon of September 20th. You and your student are welcome to view the display on the evening of September 20th or on September 21st.

It was so great to meet everyone today! This is going to be a GREAT year in our Kindergarten. Here are a few reminders for Wednesday:

  1. Please send your child to school with their yellow take-home folder. Please return the Student Information sheet filled out.
  2. If you have changed how your child is going home from what you told us at Meet & Greet, we MUST have a written note from a parent/guardian.
  3. Send a small snack for your child EVERY day. You may also send a water bottle (labeled with their name) everyday.
  4. An extra set of clothes in a Ziploc to be kept in their backpack for just in case.
  5. If you are sending in supplies and are not delivering them personally, feel free to send in a few items at a time. We will label what is needed here at school.

Remember to mark your calendar for Parent Night on August 9th! We will have more time to discuss specifics of our classroom and answer your questions.
