Recognizing Peace Initiatives

District students celebrated peace by showcasing their artistic talents in various ways at the Shanti Fund Peace Celebration.

The celebration featured submissions of students’ visual artwork, a vocal performance, and a Peace Perspective presentation titled “Peace and Wisdom in Freeport” by the J.W. Dodd Middle School Odyssey of the Mind team. The presentation, which earned first place in a competition featuring other school districts, focused on the several ways the district annually promotes peace through walks, concerts and marches, and how to find peace and live in harmony.
