Pinwheels for Peace and the Importance of Publicity

By Nancy Walkup, posted on Sep 22, 2010

It turns out that about five or six schools in my district celebrated Pinwheel's for Peace.

Our paper did a feature on the elementary schools that participated, including mine and you can look at them here.  I long ago learned that you must take it upon yourself to promote your programs, especially through your local news media. I have gotten to know our local education writers just from sending them so many publicity releases and photographs. So don't be shy in promoting what your students are doing. It's up to you!
