Paper Crane for Peace Folding activity
Tables will be setup in the school lobby on Friday, December 15 from 1:40-2:10 for Paper Crane Making.
Last year students from Runkle, Lawrence, and other schools around Brookline folded over one thousand paper cranes and sent them to Washington D.C. as a message for peace and tolerance on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The origami peace crane is a symbol of hope and healing during challenging times. Crane folding is in itself a peaceful, meditative activity, and last year we found it to be a powerful force for community-building as well. In light of everything that has been happening in the world, as well as in our own community, it is vital that we continue this tradition, to spread a message of peace and tolerance on Friday, Dec 15th, in a town-wide day of unity.
The Facebook page can give you more information too. If you have any questions can you please direct them to the Lawrence organizer, Kay Kobayashi. We are hoping to have all the Paper Cranes collected by Jan 8th/10th.
