International Peace Day at MRMS
The UN General Assembly declared an International Day of Peace (September 21) to strengthen the ideals of peace throughout the world. Maury River Middle School 7th Grade Civics students worked in conjunction with Dr. Susan Mead to build peace in their school and community. Students learned about the freedoms of petition, speech, and assembly and how to conduct those freedoms in a peaceful manner. They participated in the creation of the Lexington City Peace Wave and created individual projects designed to promote peace.
