In the spirit of giving during this special time of year, we will again be collecting new & gently used toys for Metropolitan Ministries.

 

 

 

Our goal is for PHMA students to appreciate and learn the value of giving by helping children who might otherwise not have anything for the holidays.

 

 

Toys should be UNWRAPPED and placed in the designated bins outside the Main Building at the Nebraska Campus and at the Middle School Building.  Please bring items from December 5 through December 19.  If the item requires batteries, please provide new batteries.

The children enjoyed presenting the Peace Runners with their art work.  Everyone sang  the Peace Run Song.

 

 

The  Junior Elementary students sang Light a Candle for Peace and everyone joined in the tune. The Senior Elementary students did the Happy Dance, which put a smile on everyone’s face!  The New Middle School students presented the Runners with their poems for peace. Then it was off and running for one and all to symbolize our quest for global peace.

 

The Peace Run is one of humanity’s largest and longest grass roots effort for peace.  The torch has visited more than 140 nations since it’s beginning in 1987.  Anyone interested in knowing more about the Peace Run Organization can visit their website at wwNP_383175_CLIF_clwpeacerun050714w.peacerun.org.
