PKMS Celebrates International Day of Peace By Creating Art

On September 21, an International Day of Peace was celebrated across the world. At Peekskill Middle School, Margaret’s Place counselor Mrs. Rawlins created this peace display for the school lobby.
Margaret's Place partnered with RISE students in Mrs. Roldan's Art class to discuss peace and what it means to them. The group explored ways to spread peace in our home, school and community. Students also explored ways to find inner peace during stressful times. Each student decorated their own peace sign hands to display on a board in the art room.
