Promoting Peace Through Play

  • “Peace on Our Planet”


    Grades K-5

    The week of Sept. 27th-Oct 1st

     "A smile is the beginning of Peace." - Mother Teresa

    The Physical Education department is looking to promote peace through community action and physical well being. This year we have teamed up with the Shanti fund .The Shanti fund is a charitable organization based on Long Island. The Shanti Fund has been working to promote ideals and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi.

     We will be running a canned food drive the days leading up to Gandhi’s birthday as a way to promote peace and non-violence for our children. We are asking all students to bring in canned goods to their Physical Education periods during the week of September 27th through October 1st. Donations will benefit the Sayville Food Pantry. On October 1st, students (and staff too!!) are asked to dress up in white as a symbol of peace.
