Students in Jennifer Dibble’s art classes recently worked on a collaborative project at Edmund W. Miles Middle School. Using watercolor paints, they made colorful feathers that were then used to create a peace dove on a bulletin board, which every student passes by on their way to the cafeteria and gymnasium. 

The middle school is designated as a No Place for Hate school by the Anti-Defamation League, and the creation of the dove is part of the ongoing initiative to foster a culture of compassion and kindness. Ms. Dibble coordinated with social worker Beatriz Offitto on the project.
