Pearson Elementary Opens New Year with Peaceful Solution


A big surprise awaited the students of Pearson Elementary School when school began last week. A group of parents joined forces to convert their school playground into a "Peaceful Playgrounds" by painting educational games and activities just in time for the opening of the new school year. The painting of the multi-use circle shown here is just one of more than 100 games and activities that can be added to the typical school playground.

The program teaches conflict resolution skills, as well as, keeps kids physically active during recess.
