International Day of Peace

International Day of Peace, September 21st, provides a powerful and inspiring opportunity to engage children and youth in diverse activities related to peace, unity and making a positive difference in their world. Meaningful involvement can help set a tone of respect and unity early in the academic year. Do you want to be a part of that?

Peace Project Video

Hi, my name is Cheryl McCrorey and I'm a school library media coordinator at South Elementary in Mooresville, NC, USA. I'm so excited about this project which was started in 2014 by Lisa Parisi, an award winning educator in Hyde Park, New York. Lisa aimed to enable today’s children to make the world a better place in the future. I began participating in 2015 and have LOVED being a part of it. Lisa is now enjoying retirement, and I volunteered to take over the project in 2019. It's just such a rewarding project, Lisa and I didn't want it to come to an end. Classes all over the world participate, and being a part of such a project is so empowering for our children! I hope you will join us in this exciting project that joins students from all over the world in celebrating PEACE! Check out our video from last year, 2021.

  • DO NOT RECORD until you receive a track to record with. I am in collaboration with Mooresville High School in NC, USA. They will record a musical track with lyrics that I will share with you. We will have no copyright issues this way as well as collaboration with a talented group of students!!! I will send that out in the next few weeks.
  • Please put videos and files in this shared folder. Maker SURE that your name and school name is on all files!!!!
