Please join us for our campus Peace Day Celebration shortly after the start of the school day on September 21st. This event will be located outside, around our traffic circle where we dedicated a Peace Pole as part of last year's inaugural event.
At 8:30 that morning, the traffic circle will be closed to all traffic to accommodate our celebration; please arrive early to take advantage of the remaining parking spaces in our south parking lot, or use the lot at Tony Grampsas Park and then walk the short distance to campus.
At 8:45, our celebration will begin.
Our program will include short remarks by Compass leadership, and presentations by classrooms and student representatives of each of our levels: Children's House (preschool and kindergarten), Elementary (grades 1-6), Farm School (grades 7-9), and High School (grades 10-12).
The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly to be observed each year on the third Tuesday in September. Two decades later, in 2001, the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and ceasefire.
The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
