ROSELLE, N.J. - Students at Roselle’s Harrison School celebrated two events this past Friday. The first event was Grandparent's Day. This event celebrated the first Sunday after Labor Day, has been celebrated at Harrison School for the past three years. The students invited their grandparents for tea and cookies and were able to spend quality time together affirming that special bond between grandparents and grandchildren.
Immediately following Grandparent’s Day, the whole school participated in an “International Day of Peace” event on the front lawn of the school.
This is the 8th year the Harrison school has participated in the Pinwheels for Peace event. The students wrote their thoughts about war and peace, tolerance, living in harmony with others, anti bullying and anti violence on a slip of paper that was placed on the pinwheel. The pinwheels were then placed on the lawn for the community to see their messages of hope. This also serves as a visual public statement about the need for peace in the world.
“What a wonderful way to celebrate Grandparents' Day and National Day of Peace. It was a beautiful display of love and unity in our school community, as the school chorus sang,... One Love. Nice job Harrison Elementary school family,” said Candida Young, Roselle Board of Education President.
