A Little Rock elementary school holds Peace Week parade



Little Rock, Arkansas – A Little Rock elementary school is using this week to teach students to lead with peace.

On Monday morning, Booker T. Washington Elementary hosted their annual peace parade.

In order to teach kids about finding solutions to conflict, participants marched around neighborhood streets wearing peace gear.

The event is being celebrated as part of Arkansas Peace Week, with more activities planned for the coming days.

According to B.T. Washington principal Aleta Posey, the goal of the event is to show kids an alternative to violence

“We have to start early,” Posey said. “We have to start while they’re young and actually build them up so that they will actually be able to use their words vs. their actions in a negative way.”

In addition to the parade, B.T Washington students also unveiled their blessing box this year.
