Friday, September 21st Peace Walk at 1:00pm
On Friday, September 21st, Mary Beck will have our annual Peace Walk at 1:00 p.m. We are hoping to make it bigger this year and we need your help to do that! We are asking parents and the community to join us as we march in celebration of the International Day of Peace.
We are asking you to wear shirts that are either yellow or black (colors of our No Bully Zone), or that have peace signs on them during the walk. You can also bring a pinwheel or stick one in your front yard to support us during our walk. We are sending home a pinwheel for the students to make with parents at home. You can go to www.pinwheelsforpeace.com for the template.
We will be walking the following route that day:
Leave Mary Beck Elementary (818 McDonald St.) and walk up McDonald
Turn right on Princeton Blvd.
Continue straight to Middlebury St.
Turn left on Middlebury St.
Continue straight to Madison St.
Make a left on Madison and continue until Aspenwald Ave.

Continue straight to Princeton Blvd.
Turn right on Princeton and continue straight to Congress St.
Turn left on Congress St.
We hope that you can join us this day and help cheer our students on. We are all linked together and this is a great way to show that we can make a difference and stand up for peace!
