St Ann students, pictured here with their pinwheels for peace, participated along with Longfellow and Black Rock Elementary School students in a peace pole dedication at the newly renovated and reopened Black Rock branch library in Bridgeport, CT.
200+ students and their teachers and neighbors and friends attended. Students read letters from Senator Dodd, Senator Leiberman, and Representative Jim Himes. State Representative Auden Grogins was on hand to congratulate the students and encourage them to continue bringing peace into their schools and neighborhoods. The prayer “May Peace Prevail on Earth” is written on the peace pole in English, Spanish, Japanese, and American Sign Language (ASL).
