We have lined up a series of speakers to address the children of our community. Speakers include public service figures from various areas such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), various Embassy officials, physicians, NASA, and other organizations. The lectures will be targeted to elementary age children. The children are encouraged to ask questions and provide suggestions for how to improve our world. We plan to record the talks and publish the transcript for all to share.

The students will read the books and create visual displays to share with parents, teachers and community members. The students will share what they have learned about solving problems peacefully, working in their communities, and helping their communities by recycling.

This is the first attempt to create a free learning and free play environment for children of all ages in the Peloponnese based on the Sudbury Valley School principles. It is a pilot venture that aims to foster relationships of trust in a democratic educational community where the children have their say and are treated with respect to their special interests. For this purpose we set up a free camp this summer where families with children could share some quality time together in the countryside.

As a United Nations Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane makes it a priority each and every year to observe and celebrate the annual International Day of Peace on September 21. One of the ways that students celebrated the day was by building their own flying dove puppets and helping to sew a Giant Peace Dove Puppet. Fourth grade students learned more about Dr. Goodall and her role as a UN Messenger of Peace. On October 10, the students' handmade puppets were brought to be used by the community in a real, live parade! The "We Are All in The Same Boat" parade, held in Dolores Park, was led by Peter Schumann and the renowned Bread and Puppet Theatre. Rooftop's 4th graders created the signs, banners, and, of course, puppets used in the parade. The students used Nature as the inspiration for their puppets, thinking of the millions of creatures that live in the ocean or fly above the ocean. Using the metaphor of a giant boat, the parade asked the question, “What if we could all swim together?” and offered a larger-than-life picture for parade watchers to witness - young and old, working together in peace.

Our group of Middle School students will be creating a jig, then measuring, cutting, heating and sealing the ends of specific lengths of paracord in preparation to make Quick Deploy Bracelets. Once all of the rope has been prepped and our group feels confident in their ability to teach others how to make the bracelets, they are going to raise awareness throughout our school community and teach others to make bracelets as well.

Enable the children and their families to share their gardening efforts with the local community (be it insect or human!) by providing vegetables, herbs and spices. We are building our second garden box, made from salvaged resources like wood pallets. The design and inspiration came from the website: http://foodisfreeproject.org/ Constructing and maintaining these garden boxes improves the environment and exposes the children to gardening skills and new foods for health. May also be an opportunity to spotlight certain herbs, spices or plants to educate children about other cultures (through cuisine or other cultural traditions) - building bridges between cultures. To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson "To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition."

We made the cards on February 11 with construction paper donated by the Art Department that they wanted to get rid of, old magazines, old scraps of ribbon, and other items we have saved over the years. We distributed them on February 12 in teachers' mailboxes.
