About the Event: We are asking all schools to participate in the Day of Peace by creating Pinwheels for Peace Gardens. Let us know about your gardens by posting pictures or videos on social media using the hashtag #SCS4Peace. Pinwheel gardens that exhibit the most outstanding expressions of peace will be selected and highlighted at the National Civil Rights Museum. The pinwheel gardens will highlight the peaceful marches and boycotts that were led by Dr. King during the Civil Rights era and how SCS now stands against anything that breaks peace in our city: bullying, fighting, discrimination against any group, lack of empathy or tolerance.
