Diplomat Middle School 3rd Annual PEACE Walk

Diplomat Middle School is currently teaching its students about kindness and how to be kind and create “peace” through actions. The 3rd Annual PEACE Walk is planned for Friday, October 19th.

“The PEACE Walk is Diplomat’s way to raise awareness on the importance of being kind,” says Principal Maura Bennington. “We teach character education and promote a bully-free safe environment in which students are given the opportunity to thrive socially and academically.”

Students started learning back in September about kindness and also about the importance of giving back to their community. They were challenged to raise $10 or more for the Walk-a-thon. The money raised goes right back to the school and a portion raised goes to a selected charity that the students choose. This year’s designated charity is American Cancer Society because the school recently lost one of their beloved teachers to Pancreatic Cancer.

The goal is to raise $10,000. Last year the students raised $6,000 and used the proceeds to bring in motivational speaker Jon Pritikin from California for a presentation about being kind and achieving your goals.
