  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.
