Support Our Peace Project
This spring, we will be implementing a Peace Project, where students will use the design cycle to create a stepping stone pathway. This project is similar in nature to last year's Dream Flag Project. The stones will be unique to each student, and they will be showcased around our community garden in the back of our building. This project is a way to discuss peace around the world, peace within our building, and peace within ourselves. It enables the students an opportunity to think of peace in different ways and express themselves freely. In an effort to raise funds for the project, we have created a GoFundMe account; if you are interested in donating, please visit the link above. We are looking forward to this project, and we hope each family will come view the stones. Thank you for your continued support of innovative, creative thinking and learning at Herbert Mills STEM!
