During the past few weeks, many of our students have learned about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his remarkable life, his leadership, and his dreams for a more just and peaceful world. Our teachers and students have been reading and writing about Dr. King; his historical influence and the important role he has played in our country.
Related to our discussions on Dr. King, our second graders challenged their fellow Bacich students to fold 1,000 paper origami cranes to represent our school’s wish for a peaceful and caring country and world.
The second graders have reminded us of the importance of listening to one another and opening our hearts and minds to differing opinions and points of view. They have shared how we must stand together for peace and stand up for those individuals who may not have a voice.
In our all-school assembly, last Friday morning, we celebrated the culmination of this meaningful paper crane project. At the entrance to the Bacich Community Center hang 1,440 paper cranes made by the students over the past month. They will hang in this spot for a few weeks to remind us of the courage, tolerance, and kindness we want to encourage in our world. We invite you to come by, admire the hard work of our students, and make your own wish for peace.
