MADISON -- Blessed Sacrament School in Madison's theme this year is about being a peacemaker.

The theme, "Peace Begins With Me," was incorporated into the intermediate unit's annual bonding party in September.

As a team-building activity, students spelled the word "PEACEMAKERS" by placing cups in the church and playground fences. They also formed a human peace symbol on the playground.

Here are comments made by the children about the activity:

  • "We really think it will help our school and the people around us to become peacemakers."
  • "We hope it lasts all year so that when people walk by they know that our school is a place of peace."
  • "If everybody acts like a peacemaker, it would change our world and that's what God and Jesus would want from us."
