Initiatives

Children for Peace

Children for Peace is a Joliet Public Schools District 86 initiative that will instill in our children peaceful strategies to resolve issues and to recognize those who contribute and support peace in the Joliet community. More than 11,000 students in sixteen elementary and four junior high schools will engage in various projects throughout the year to promote kindness, encourage positive self-esteem and foster constructive student relations. Activities include district wide food drive, "Put an End to Bullying" curriculum, art exhibit, music curriculum, poetry/essay contest, and random acts of kindness.
