International Day of Peace

International Day of Peace

Friday, September 21st

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.

*     Ms. 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.

Community Helpers Day

Friday, September 14

This week, we will be learning about community helpers and goods & services.  We are planning a Community Helpers Day where the children get to come to school dressed as their favorite community helper.  We are planning this day for Friday (September 14th).  Please have your child choose a community helper that they would like to be when they grow up.  Help them get a costume (outfit) together to dress as that helper. 

Then, have your child complete the attached page using their handwriting and adding a photo of them dressed up as their community helper.  We will be using these pages for a class book.  This should be lots of fun and not stressful for you.  Please let us know if you need any help with this.  Thanks for all your support and we look forward to seeing all the wonderful “Little Helpers” on Friday!
