Let's #PromotePeace this year

August 2017

We asked Pennsylvania school professionals how students and parents can #PromotePeace in schools, homes, and communities. Here's what they had to say:

  • "Teach tolerance at home by word and deed. Model behavior that promotes community involvement and social responsibility." — Denise Kennedy, elementary school principal's secretary, Upper Darby Education Support Professionals Association (ESP)
  • "Think of others first. Serve one another. Create an environment of caring, serving, and selflessness." — Deborah Harzinski, elementary secretary, Curwensville ESP
  • "Teach conflict-resolution skills through role-playing. Discuss compromise, taking turns, and listening skills." — Jannette Vegas, third-grade teacher, Erie City Education Association (EA)
  • "Begin a new tradition with peers and family by doing small, random acts of kindness for friends, neighbors, etc. Teach them that giving is so much better than receiving!" — Liz Brewer, retired school counselor, Susquehanna Valley
  • "Engage, in home and at school, in programs, activities, and practices that promote peace and inclusion initiatives." — Anthony Shelton, art teacher, Abington EA
  • "Be more positive online!" — Lauren Morus, elementary music teacher, Conemaugh Valley EA
