These beautiful Peace Poles were made by students to benefit their fellow students in the Special Ed program at the George Fischer Middle School in Carmel, NY, USA
“I wanted to update you on the Peace Pole project we have been doing here at the George Fischer Middle School. To date, we have made 20 Desktop Peace Poles and they are all unique and wonderful. We are now going to start selling them to teachers in the building. We made them to include the message, May Peace Prevail On Earth, in English, French, Italian and Spanish, which are the languages taught in our school. We included flags from each country and added cool stickers to sweeten them up! The students loved making them and they vary in size from about 6 inches to approximately 12 inches.
We made them from a variety of different woods…. trying to keep them interesting.
I have attached photos so you can see the fruits of our labor. I hope you like them!
Proceeds from sales will benefit our special education classes.”
