During the first week of school, Upper School students in Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 participated in a Peace Day Art Contest through the Rotary Club of Foxboro. Students responded to the prompt, “What Peace Means to Me” with entries like essays, poems, and drawings. All contest finalists were students from Sage!

The Peace Day event was held this past weekend at the Foxboro Common with a Peace Day Pole displaying the artwork and booths featuring multi-cultural and children’s activities. Event organizers read Sage students’ winning poems and essays throughout the event.

Sen. Paul Feeney, D-Foxboro, shared with the Sun Chronicle that it was a wonderful gathering of the community.

“When we talk about acting and thinking globally it really is about acting locally and that’s what Foxboro Rotary is on today,” he said. “Bringing together so many diverse individuals and organizations in our community to promote peace from within to start right here in our own community to celebrate our diversity and to promote peace across the country and across the world.”

Diane Krentzman Porter, President-Elect of the Foxboro Rotary Club, virtually joined the Friday All School meeting to congratulate the Peace Day Art Contest winners and present awards.
