Last Friday, September 17th, our second and third grade students participated in Chicago’s 32nd Annual Peace Day Celebration at the Daley Plaza. Our students served as flag bearers representing various countries while other AGC students flew our Peace Day Dove Puppet. This puppet was assembled by some of our AGC parents as one of our Parent Partnership Projects. Our special thanks goes out to them for all of their help! Chicago is an official United Nations Peace Messenger City. We used this exciting opportunity to discuss ways we can be peaceful at home and at school. Throughout the school year we will continue our “Plan for Peace” at AGC by displaying respect and tolerance towards others.
And a BIG thanks goes to Regina Harris, AGC third grade teacher, for organizing our students’ participation in this wonderful event!
