On Monday, January 25th 2016, Lamar Fine Arts Academy hosted their annual Peace Through Pie event as part of their school-wide No Place for Hate yearly campaign. AVID students and student council representatives helped to put the program together. They were guided by ELA teacher/NP4H Coordinator Dorothy Winburne, and Social and Emotional Learning facilitator/AVID teacher Constance Ledesma. Kerren Campa, active parent and member of Lamar’s SEL Steering Committee, took on a leading role as well, getting pizza and pies donated from local businesses and taking care of logistics like cups, plates, water, and pie slicers. She also managed the mild chaos of middle schoolers serving pie to other middle schoolers with effortless grace. Check out all the awesome that happened on that peaceful evening!
Beautiful pies created and donated by Lamar parents and community partners–before the peaceful devouring
The devouring begins…peace can come through sharing all kinds of pies, including pizza pie!

The program for the event
Beautiful mandalas created by 6th grade Lamar art students…
…Encouraging event participants to create their own mandalas for peace.
Student leaders got into peace promotion by wearing, singing, and reading for the theme…
…And performance groups lent their multitude of talents to the evening.
Parents, teachers and students added the names of famous peace promoters to this banner…
And Ms. Dorothy Winburne had the last word, sharing Lamar’s dedication to increasing the peace on the planet.
Thanks for another successful, delicious Peace Through Pie, Lamar Fine Arts Academy! We sure are #AISDProud of y’all!
