WHAT: Students at 186th Street Elementary School have a common goal: Unity for peace. The school will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday by holding its 13th Annual Peace March. As part of the event, 20 doves symbollizing peace will be released. Students also will complete public service projects, and commit to creating bully-free zones at school and at home.
Those who dedicate their lives to public service will attend, and the day will also celebrate family, friends and community partners. What’s more, the students will demonstrate lessons learned from Peace First, which offers a curriculum of games and activities that teach positive school behaviors.
