On September 21, The Steward School celebrated Whirled Peace Day — an annual event loved by all. Students in Middle School and Upper School art classes, as well as all Lower School students, each created a pinwheel (a symbol of peace). During Community Time on September 21, students gathered outside to “plant” their pinwheels and join in songs that celebrate peace. Each year for Whirled Peace Day, the Steward community partners with an organization. In the past, Steward has collaborated with Richmond Children’s Hospital, Henrico Police and Fire, the James River Foundation, and The Anna Julia Cooper School.
In 2023, on Whirled Peace Day we collected canned goods for Meals on Wheels and Feed More.
