peaceonephotocropPeace One Day, Sept. 21st, is an annual day of Global Unity to commit to Peace above all differences and contribute to building a culture of peace. Peace One Day’s ultimate goal is to institutionalize the day around the world, engaging all sectors of society in its observance of global ceasefire and non-violence.

Roosevelt celebrates this day with classes and events on the topic of world peace, building the opportunity to promote the vision of Roosevelt’s International Baccalaureate program. All 1,200 Roosevelt Middle School students, staff, and volunteers receive a Peace One Day T-Shirt and gather in the courtyard to create a human peace sign and join in a dance lead by our favorite school mascot, Teddy. The message of creating peace within your life, as well as others, is integrated throughout the celebration. See last year’s video of the 2017 Peace One Day RMS Celebration.

Parents are welcome to attend the celebration which starts at 2:00 pm. Please sign in at the office.
