Giving Peace From The Heart (Middle States Accreditation Project)
MAY PEACE TALK
Virtue: Unconditional love-- to think of others first: to forgive and be friends again.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
Peace Awards: Recall the virtue for each month and the person or spiritual reference associated with that virtue. Award all the children a Peace prize for displaying a specific virture.
Peace Party: Celebrate the gift of peace with your children by planning a special party. Invite the parents to the celebration. Students can share with them what they learned about peace during the year.
Peace Parade: Plan a parade with your children. Students can sing songs of peace, carry signs and pictures illustrating peaceful ways and parade through the hallways of school. This can be a reminder to thw entire school community that peace begins with very young children.
