We invite you to sit back and explore the fantastic PeaceBuilding events happening throughout the United States and U.S. Territories.


Lindo Park Elementary - Lakeside, CA
A PeaceBuilders kick-off event each year is a powerful way to remind staff and students of your site's commitment to building peace. Sites across the nation have many wonderfully diverse ways to do this.

Building peace at Lindo Park Elementary means learning about the history of their community and about the culture of its oldest members. Each year this school and the Kumeyaay tribe work together to put on their PeaceBuilders kick-off event, which is more than a beautiful spectacle, it is a commitment to peace in the community and a warm gesture of friendship and respect. Students and staff, parents, members from the community and district officials attend.

Prior to this year's event, as usual, the site is decorated with PeaceBuilders signs and posters.

A sign for each of the PeaceBuilders Principles, like this one for Seek Wise People, was displayed near the meeting place for the kick-off assembly.


They said the Pledge of Allegiance and the PeaceBuilders Pledge at the beginning of the assembly and talked about what it means to be a PeaceBuilder. Different class groups presented
portions of the assembly.


Native-American dances were performed by young members of the Kumeyaay tribe, some of whom are students at the school. These young people help build peace in the community by providing education about the Kumeyaay culture and by extending their hands in friendship.

 
The dancers are dressed in exquisite traditional costumes.

The colorful costumes are shown off beautifully by talented young Native-American dancers.


The assembly ends with a traditional friendship dance in which audience members are invited to participate.


PeaceBuilders kick-off events are always unique presentations. Each site has its own personality to demonstrate-so each site will have different ideas about what kind of activities or events occur.

We praise Lindo Park Elementary for involving the community in their PeaceBuilding efforts and for inspiring us all to recommit ourselves to the dance of peace.
