To commemorate World Peace Day on Sept. 21, John Street School students planted 500 pinwheels in the shape of a peace sign on the school’s front lawn.

The annual schoolwide activity, which is run by art teacher Christine Randazzo, is for Pinwheels for Peace, an art installation project that was started in 2005 by two teachers in Florida to celebrate World Peace Day and inspire “whirled peace.”

Prior to planting their pinwheels, students signed their names in colorful markers on a “peace” banner.
