Sutherland Elementary School’s student body gathered to re-dedicate its revitalized Peace Garden on Sept. 21, International Peace Day. Students read poems promoting peace, and teacher John Wegman led a rendition of “Give Peace a Chance,” by John Lennon. Teachers Pam Civik, Meredith Weber, Mary Desmond and Jane Feurer helped create the garden in 2002, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and Sutherland’s “Green Team,” which included Becca Blue, Kristin LoVerde and Catherine Mac, revamped the garden; it now includes white perennial blooms. Parents hosted a fundraiser at Wild Blossom Meadery and Winery in the spring to assist in the purchase of flowers. Teachers and students also worked on the redesign of the site. According to Principal Meg Burns, Sutherland plans to host an International Peace Day ceremony every year at the garden. (Review photos)
