I pledge. . .
To praise people | To give up put downs | To seek wise people |
To notice and speak up about hurts I have caused | To right wrongs | To help others
I will build peace at home, at school, and in my community each day.
PeaceBuilders is the research validated violence prevention and character education program that is a part of what makes Our Lady of Peace such a great place to learn and grow. The program has become a big part of what we do here and you can see it in action during lunch, on recess, in our classrooms and even at home. Our Social Justice Day, Peace Circles, and PeaceBuilders bulletin board help reinforce the curiculum.
Created for the young child, child, pre-teen and teen, PeaceBuilders addresses risk factors, which predict violence, bullying and drug and tobacco use. Participation in PeaceBuilders reduces aggression, promotes language development, and teaches pro-social skills.
