One of the central tenets of our work at State College Friends School is teaching students how to build peace. This can look like everything from practicing sincere apologies to analyzing social movement tactics from United States history. Children of all ages learn that they have the agency and the responsibility to actively engage in resolving interpersonal conflicts and, one day, finding ways to address the systems of oppression that harm so many. As you look through this issue of A Friendly Voice, we invite you to reflect upon the question, “What does peace mean to you?”
We appreciate you taking the time to read about the good work that is happening at our school. If any questions or reflections arise, feel free to share them by replying to this email.
