The intention of the Peace Pole planting was a program the school had with the theme: “Making the Connection Peace by Piece” Motto: “Don’t wait for peace to work for peace.”
This Peace Pole was not ordered through the World Peace Prayer Society, but rather the children created it themselves, learning the art of wood burning called Pyrography. It was planted Dec 6, 2006 during a two-hour community dedication ceremony, unveiling the first Pole planted in a DeKalb School as part of the school’s Pathway to Peace Program.
