The Caroline G. Atkinson school held its peace pole dedication ceremony as part of the district’s International Peace Pole project.

This is the third Peace Pole dedication for the district. The beautiful dedication ceremony was planned and conducted by Atkinson students. They sang the song “One Day” and wrote and shared their own thoughts about what peace means to them. Students also shared quotes on peace from activists including Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa and Jimi Hendrix. Two homing pigeons were released to commemorate peace.
