Pinwheels for Peace at Thunder Mountain Elementary

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTINO, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- For the second year in a row, Thunder Mountain Elementary second graders placed paper pinwheels in the grass in front of their school to celebrate International Peace Day on September 20.

The teacher in charge of this says the pinwheels are a visual statement that students are living a peaceful lifestyle not only at school but in the community as well.

"If at a young age you can focus them on being a more peaceful person, then as they grow up and go to middle school and high school and in their adult lives, they'll have that empowerment to be a more peaceful person and encourage that peaceful lifestyle," expressed Jessica Nees, a second grade teacher.

More than 500 pinwheels were put outside of the school.
