World peace day

They are all PEACEMAKERS!

Yesterday, Sunday, September 21, 2014, UNESCO celebrated World Peace Day.  Monarca students observed this special day on Friday, September 19th in our English classes.  Students and English teachers did various activities from Comunidad Infantil and Preschool creating peace symbols to Primary learning biographies of true famous peacemakers.  Monarca is proud to participate in educating and promoting peace in our school and our world. 

Did you know? . . . A symbol of peace is the dove.  Its origins are from the story of Noah and the Ark.  When the rains that flooded the earth stopped, Noah sent out various birds to see if they would bring back any sign of land.  A dove returned carrying an olive branch in its mouth to show it came from dry land.  Another symbol of peace are hands.  A handshake in many cultures is to show a friendly greeting. 

Former U.S.A. President Jimmy Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize for peace negotiations with other countries and fighting for human rights.

Nelson Mandela received the Nobel Peace Prize for peacefully ending Apartheid in South Africa after he spent years in prison for his opposition to it.

Mahatam Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. both organized and led non-violence protests against their governments’ unfair laws that discriminated people based on race.

¿Qué tienen los estudiantes de Monarca en común con el Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., el presidente Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi y el presidente Jimmy Carter? 
¡Todos son PACIFICADORES!

Ayer, el domingo, 21 de septiembre de 2014, la UNESCO celebró el Día de Paz mundial. Los estudiantes de Monarca observaron este día especial el viernes, 19 de septiembre en nuestras clases de inglés.  Los estudiantes y maestros de inglés hicieron varias actividades.  Comunidad Infantil y preescolar crearon símbolos de paz y primaria aprendieron sobre biografías de verdaderos Pacificadores famosos.  Monarca está orgulloso de participar en educar y promover la paz en nuestra escuela y nuestro mundo.

¿Sabías que? . . .

Un símbolo de la paz es la paloma. Sus orígenes son la historia de Noé y el Arca. Cuando las lluvias que inundaron la tierra se detuvieron, Noé mandó varios pájaros para ver si regresaban con cualquier signo de tierra. Una paloma volvió con una rama de olivo en su boca para demostrar que llegó desde tierra firme. Otro símbolo de la paz son las manos. En muchas culturas un apretón de manos es un saludo amistoso.

Ex Presidente Jimmy Carter ganó el Premio Nobel de la paz por las negociaciones de paz con otros países y por luchando por los derechos humanos. 
Nelson Mandela recibió el Premio Nobel de la paz por medios pacíficos de terminar al apartheid en Sudáfrica después de pasar años en la cárcel por su oposición a la misma. 
Mahatam Gandhi y Martin Luther King, Jr. organizaron y dirigieron protestas de no violencia contra sus gobiernos de sus leyes injustas que discriminados por motivos de raza.
