Peace Pole Dedication at Cooper City High, Florida-USA-April, 2008

Last spring we dedicated our Peace Pole.  Each year our school, Cooper City High in Cooper City, Florida, participate in a joint school/community peace rally.  My environmental club, referred to as: SITE (Students Improving The Environment) planted a hummingbird garden surrounding the Peace Pole. The art students made mosaic stepping stones that created a peace symbol around the Peace Pole, and the students from the multicultural club dressed in the traditional outfits of their countries for the event.  On that night, the community was invited to  plant wild flower seeds around the Peace Pole.  It was such fun to watch the flowers grow over the next few months.
