Peace Pole at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy-Savannah, Georgia-USA

Hello Ann Marie,

 

We had a dedication ceremony for our new Peace Pole at our school in Savannah, Georgia.   A few notes about our school:  We are a public Montessori school named ‘Charles Ellis Montessori Academy’, grades pre-K – 8th, with a socio-economically diverse student body.

One part of our ceremony had 8th graders (graduating this year) passing on white paper peace roses that they made to our new pre-K students.   It was heart-warming to see the oldest and the youngest interact this way.   The remainder of the ceremony had each grade level performing a cultural activity/performance based on the language that their grade chose to be represented on the Peace Pole. (we have the Peace Message in 8 languages on the Peace Pole).
