On September 21, 2016, ACS celebrated the International Day of Peace. The collective power of peaceful thoughts and actions were felt throughout the school. Students gathered in the morning for peace circles where they shared their wishes for peace and their dreams for the future of our planet. Throughout the day the children worked to create a flower mandala, which held all their hopes and dreams of peace. Many of them took home one flower at the end of the day as we worked together as an elementary school to spread our wishes far and wide.
