Region 3 Pinwheels for Peace Celebration

Region 3 would like you to join us to celebrate Pinwheels for Peace.
In today’s world, peace needs to become more than just a word. 
On Friday September 21, 2018. Plan to take part in an International art and literacy project, Pinwheels for Peace by “planting” pinwheels with messages of peace. You can display them in school outside or at a local establishment. 

Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two Art teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan, of Coconut Creek, Florida, as a way for students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives.
Share with us your lessons and pictures of your school participating either of Facebook or email to Heather: [email protected]

All that do will be put into a drawing for at Michaels $10 gift card.
