Fishkill Plains Elementary Students Dedicate Peace Pole
On Friday, September 20, 2019, Fishkill Plains Elementary School students and staff gathered on the front lawn under a beautiful, clear blue sky to participate in a Peace Pole Ceremony.
Fifth- and Sixth-Grade students sang songs and rang musical bells along with some of their teachers and principal, Miss Fazio. According to Miss Fazio, the Peace Pole is a wonderful addition to the school because it helps to teach children about spreading peace in the world, not only among nations, but also between each other. The project also includes an essay writing component.
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
