International Peace Day and Pinwheels for Peace

Pinwheels for Peace was a success! Seventeen classes took part. Over the course of the day we approximately 360 pinwheels in the garden at De Zavala Elementary. A little inadvertent watering and a tiny touch of rain left some of our pinwheels the worse for wear, but otherwise all went well.

In addition to the Pinwheels for Peace, we hung a small portion of our wishes for peace from several small trees.

Adding wishes for peace to one of our Wish Trees.

Here's to wishing for a peaceful future for all of us.
