We are a school of K-6 students in Anchorage, Alaska, who, with the guidance of our librarian, are embarking on a project to promote global peace and learn about the world. We want to be a part of the change and are working hard at promoting peace within our school, community, and the world.

We are excited to see where the journey takes us!
