PRLog - Sep. 18, 2012 - The Montessori School at Holy Rosary in Little Italy, Cleveland Ohio, is taking an active part in International Peace Day this Friday, September 21.
The Taste of Little Italy, September 23, 3:00-7:00pm
Beyond projects and activities in class that will center around peace and its important impact internationally, a reinforcement of what is already part of the daily tenets in this diverse school, the students will don their signature blue and orange school t-shirts and head out into the neighborhood for a cleanup project throughout Little Italy.
"It's important to give our students opportunities to actively participate in acts of service. It's is through the actual doing that they feel a sense of pride and commitment to the community in which they belong. We feel these are the foundations of living peacefully together," says Tina Schneider, the school director.
The community is invited to join the students at a gathering in the Holy Rosary Churchyard, 12009 Mayfield Road, Cleveland, at 3:00pm on Friday for a celebration of peace through songs and presentations. Councilman Kevin Conwell will speak, and the event will end with an ice cream social.
