Pinwheels for Peace on International Day of Peace!

With the guidance of Wheatley’s Art Teacher, Melida Gomez, Wheatley students celebrated the International Day of Peace (on 21 September 2016) with the Pinwheels for Peace Project.

In the words of Ms. Gomez:

The students at Wheatley are participating in Pinwheels for Peace on September 21.  The project involves the students discussing their thoughts and feelings about peace and what we can all do to make the world a better place. Then, designing and creating a pinwheel as part of a public installation to inspire public reflection on peace. There is more information about it through this link.

Our students will be putting their handmade Pinwheels outside in the front of each building during the times listed below. The Pinwheels will be outside all day Wednesday, and we hope you get an opportunity to see them while they are on display.  We look forward to sharing this special day with you and our student body. Thank you for your support of our program.
