On Tuesday, Sept. 21, students in studio art classes at Riverhead High School turned to creativity to share a sign of peace with the community in honor of the International Day of Peace.

As part of the students’ collaborative effort, they crafted colorful pinwheels featuring uplifting messages of peace and hope that were then placed outside of the school building to form a large peace sign.

As an additional commitment to spread peace throughout the school community, students, staff and administrators signed a peace pledge to foster a sense of respect throughout their school and beyond.
