Let there be PEACE on earth, and let it begin with me.
The week of the shooting in Las Vegas, locally we experienced another tragedy…the shooting of a young person (14 years old) in our very own community, Everett. This brought about much discussion within our 8th grade. We had a deep conversation about PEACE and how each and every one of us can play a role in spreading PEACE in our world. It begins with each of us, parents and students alike!
Mrs. Wilson (Middle School Math teacher) has launched our SMM’s very first PEACE campaign. It all began with an all-school assembly and has now evolved into a year long effort. One of our graduates, Sara Bayless da Costa (class of ’04) has designed a fun t-shirt/sweatshirt for students to purchase and wear on PEACE days throughout the school year. Thank you Sara! The message is simple…Let there be PEACE on earth and let it begin with me.
A visible reminder is key…SMM stands for PEACE! This campaign will remind each of us that if WE share this PEACE in our small communities, we will impact the world at large.
We have planned all-school “PEACE days” where students who have purchased shirts or sweatshirts can wear them all day spreading this important message. On those days students will also have an opportunity to discuss what they are doing to make a positive impact at school, home, and outside.
Join us in this effort by purchasing a t-shirt or sweatshirt. Consider giving one as a gift. You can order both youth and adult sizes. Help SMM spread the message of PEACE!
Our next PEACE DAY is January 30, 2018. Students can wear their PEACE shirts on this day.
