Bay Head is not a school, it is a community. What makes us different is the level of commitment of the the teachers, parents, administration, and most of all the students. Programs like this would not be possible without each of those groups supporting one another and remembering that we are here to enrich our society. From Buddha to the staff of BHS, I thank you.
THANK YOU!! To Mr. Kennedy, Ms. Wills, and all the BHS staff involved in the Peace One Day event, keep up the great work that you do with our children every day. Your efforts truly make a difference for our kids!
Mr. Kennedy i completely agree. You out did yourself and you couldnt have picked a better time to support PEACE ONE DAY.
Truly speaking from their hearts, BHS students delivered powerful messages tonight about unity, peace, and love. Their level of professionalism and commitment further displayed their knowledge and true spirit of the night. It is a pleasure and honor working with such wonderful, hardworking, and talented young members of this community. Thank you again for all those who made this night so successful!
Once again Mr. Kennedy, the staff and the STUDENTS at Bay Head School went above and beyond for Peace! I truly enjoyed the inspirational readings that resonated from great thinkers to great students. The Acapella singers, the 4th grade Spanish class and all the students who read, especially the 3 narrators all did a fantastic job! Looking forward to seeing what is next...Thank you!
Last night was purely magical. Watching the students perform, recite poems in Spanish, and give a detailed account of peacemakers throughout time was so inspiring. Mr. Kennedy never ceases to amaze and brings such a high caliber of expectation for his students, which pushes their thinking and prepares them for the future. Thank you also to the teachers and staff who volunteered their time to work with the students to ensure a wonderful performance. We are so very lucky to be part of a school that promotes positive student engagement, embraces the arts and above all always comes together for our students. Well done!
What a fantastic and inspiring event! I was fortunate to be able to watch the event unfold from concept to production through my work in Mr. Kennedy's class. Students from four grade levels with various talents and abilities mixed knowledge from different content areas to present an educational and uplifting presentation about peace at quite a relevant time. The poise that the students displayed as they ran the show and presented their information was beyond impressive!
last night was very extraordinary it was such a peaceful night
My family enjoyed the evening very much. It was educational and inspiring. Bay Head School students are wonderful public speakers and have great composure on stage. Well done!
Last night was our first BHS event and we were so very impressed! Everything was wonderful, from the choice and delivery of the quotes to the singing to the art show. Thank you for all of your hard work and thoughtfulness in creating such an unforgettable evening for students and parents alike.
We were so impressed with the students' speeches. They were confident and poised. What a wonderful opportunity to share a positive message with the school community. Thank you.
What an upbeat and inspiring show! Not only were the students composed and eloquent but they were heartfelt and real, two things that are hard to teach. Precepts for life were conveyed last night from children to adults and that is what will make the future more peaceful. Congratulations to Mr. Kennedy whose passion for teaching shows in every single one of his students.
Thank you Mr. Kennedy and staff! The students did an amazing job! The videos, biographies, quotes, songs, poems and artwork were impressive, informative and inspirational. PEACE EVERYDAY!!
What a fabulous show! I loved seeing everybody's smiling faces last night😀Everybody was prepared and knew what to say. Mr. Kennedy out did himself again, which does not shock me! I am so proud of all the sharks from the readers to the stage crew. It was a PEACEful night, and surely brightened up my day! GO SHARKS🌟
I thought that the show was very informative and i was very impressed on how involved and engaged all of the student were. Everyone did an amazing job and I learned so much from the show!
Thanks for sharing such a great collaborative experience with us. It was evident that the students as well as the teachers were proud to be part of this endeavor. Such an important lesson for all and a great public speaking experience as well. Kudos!
Truly inspirational, uplifting and couldn't have come at a more opportune moment in our nation's history. Thank you for teaching these important history lessons to the future generations and helping your students to put a face on humanity.
I wanted to let you know how much my family and I enjoyed the presentation. It was very informative and well brought awareness to Peace. The children did a great job with there presentation and stage presence.
hi mr. kennedy,
i thought the presentation was amazing - the students all did such a wonderful job and were so mature and poised - very professional! a really excellent time from beginning to end - bringing awareness to peace is so important right now and you guys really hit the mark! thank you!
Thank you Mr. Kennedy! This was a great evening and I could not be more impressed by how well the kids did in each of their roles. It was great to see so much participation, from presenting to A/V to photo! It was a great event and everyone involved should be proud. (for Jillian and Connor Feehan).
Excellent and as always the students kept the scope of the project quiet which added to the WOW factor when it all came together. Well done and up lifting.
What a wonderful job sharing such a powerful message. The guidance that the students received was evident in their heartfelt presentation. Peace is much more then a theme, it's an everyday decision and this helps our children understand how important are the choices they make.
I thought the presentation was very well done. Everyone knew their material and it was very impressing. There was a high level public speaking skill that the students had. There wasn't a lot of adult super-vison and I was impressed that the kids ran the show on their own.
Great Night! It was so nice to be reminded of what is truly important in life. It reminded me to re-examine what is truly important in life, and what is not.
Well done and Thank You!
If someone asked me why I choose to send my children to the Bay Head School, I would show them a video of last night's performance of PEACE ONE DAY. The performance and the incredible art work encompass the beauty of our little school: the passion of the teachers (thank you once again, Mr. K) and the students, the hands on and grass roots way of bringing real, meaningful ideas to life, the way the students learn to speak in public and dig deep to research the information they are speaking about and the way our school somehow enables all of its willing students to find his or her niche in the vast world of education and nurture it. An unprecedented job well done. Congratulations to all.
I'm very impressed with the performances last night! It was so great to see the kids discussing various leaders from many historical time periods. Now more than ever, our young people need to know that it should be "Might FOR right, not might makes right." Bay Head School and the community itself is a special place. Thank you to the teachers and staff that helped set up the event, and thank you to the students that put on the event! Taking part in events like this Peace One Day celebration will help our kids develop the skills they need to be the leaders of America in the near future.
This is truly a great thing to do for doctors with out borders and the kids in BayHead i wish my kids could have seen this. such a perfect day to have a peace day ceremony great job to the staff and kids. it takes a lot to get up on the stage and talk to a bunch of adults when you are only a kid Good Job!!!
I was very impressed by the way that the students were performing. I think it was pretty amazing how well the show was run by the kids. Everybody did a great job. I hope there will be another show like this one soon.
What a great evening! It was apparent how much time, effort and energy was put into the Peace One Day Program. Not only was it an extremely educational evening for all, but seeing how important this topic is to the students at Bay Head School was truly moving. Thank you staff and students- fantastic job!!!
Peace Day part two was informative, inspiring and presented with great spirit by very confident and interesting presenters. I enjoyed it thoroughly and will remind myself in moments of disagreement with the world around me, how much I learned from the fine students of Bay Head School on the subject of maintaining peace. Thank you!
Thank you Mr. K and all of the teachers, parents, and students that participated in making Peace One Day not only an incredible night, but an incredible experience that will hopefully have a long-lasting impact. We need Peace in our life now more than ever and having the students share this in such a meaningful, individual, and truly powerful way was very inspiring. I am in awe of the composure, confidence and professionalism of our BH students! Awesome job!
Mr. Kennedy, Mr. Camardo, the teachers and students of Bay Head School put together a most humbling, heart warming and inspirational presentation. Congratulations to all for a wonderful job and spreading the message of peace!
I love that the students learned so much in one project. They learned about all those historical figures' views on peace; gained experience in public speaking (wow!); expressed themselves through art and music; and saw the importance of taking a public stand for peace. That, plus all the patience, cooperation, and hard work it takes to put on such a wonderful evening. Loved it!
I unfortunately got to the show a little late due to work and getting notified at 5:45 that the show was taking place. I was extremely moved and thought the children I was fortunate enough to see did an outstanding job. Your teachings and enthusiasm for helping young people understand how the world has evolved over time is commendable, needed and much appreciated. It's not hard to see why children gravitate to you. I want to thank you for all you have, and will teach Derek before he leaves BHS this year. For people our age all I can say is "what a long strange trip it's been". God Bless! Peace
A special thank you to Mr. Kennedy and the staff and students at Bay Head School for sharing their incredible Peace Day insights and experiences with us. I love how the concept of “peace” was not just taught for a day, but has been interwoven throughout the curriculum this year to include technology, art, music, and Spanish. Peace is not just something our children talk about, they have learned to live it through their research, conversations, presentations and kind deeds for others including the donation to Doctors without Borders. The videos, quotes, speeches, musical selections, poetry and artwork were inspiring, educational and timely given the events in our world today. As each child presented, I certainly felt that we were moving one step closer to achieving Peace One Day.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Peace Day! There are so many lessons to be learned here from the history, public speaking, to the underlying principal that peace starts within each and every one of us. I am reminded how special our community is when we all join together in support of our school. This, in and of itself, spreads peace and joy...One thing that stood out was out well the students addressed the crowd and articulated their words indicating they knew their subjects very well. It takes a special teacher to put this together and we thank you for your extra time and effort!
I thought the students did a fabulous job at the Peace Assembly. They were prepared and enthusiastic. I feel this is an important subject, particularly during these uncertain times in our country. All generations need to be reminded of how similar we really all are and how we all want the same things here in America and across the globe…peace. Thank you Mr. Kennedy!
One of the best presentations as a whole school project. You can see the words the children spoke had meaning and reverance to them. We all collectively want peace in our lives and homes. Peace come from above down inside and outside. It was a wonderful night to share.
Thank you for organizing such an amazing event Mr. K.. Great job by all the students and staff, it was an inspirational evening. Events such as this remind me how lucky we are to have David attend Bay Head School, we are proud to be part of such a special community. Keep up the good work!!
Once again, Mr. Kennedy and the students of Bay Head Elementary
knock it out of the park! Exposing our kids (and parents) to the ideas and insights of some of the most profound thinkers and heroes throughout history (in a fun and refreshing manner) is exactly what makes BHS so much more than "a school". As Eleanor Roosevelt said
"great minds discuss ideas". Additionally, the public speaking skills demonstrated by the students was superlative, and very enjoyable.
I truly thought that all the students at Bay Head School to make that evening possible is amazing. Whether you were the greeters, readers, in tech, in acapella, crowd control, or photographers, together you all worked together to make that night an inspiring night. I appreciate Mr. Kennedy and all Bay Head School staff for making that night one to never forget.
I was so impressed by the students!
Mr. K is the kind of teacher who truly changes the lives of students! I was so proud of the kids!
We need peace more than ever and instilling kindness, peace, and love into kids will ripple out to so many! Ms. Wills, Mr. K, and Mrs. Ray collaborated so beautifully to bring such an amazing night to the community! Thank you to everyone involved!
We are grateful to be part of this school!
Peace One Day was a wonderfully inspiring night. I loved the different facets of the presentation in the way all students had a voice and came together to deliver such a strong message. Thank you Mr. K. and staff for enlightening our kids on such an important topic and to the students.....Job well done!!
What a truly inspirational night! Mr. Kennedy and the staff at
Bay Head School put together an amazing presentation on the importance of peace and being kind..something this world needs
a lot more of. I was extremely impressed with the way everything was put together. You could tell how much was put into the organization of this event. I was also impressed with how well the students spoke, and how much information they knew on each person they spoke of. They were all very well prepared and quoted many important people throughout time. I also loved the acapella group singing meaningful songs in between. I enjoyed seeing all of the special artwork at the end that all of the students got to complete together. I love that all grades get to work together as a group, and no matter what age/grade they help and support each other. These children are very lucky they go to school everyday and are taught so much more than a good education, they are taught how to be good people and make a difference in this world! Bay Head school is a truly special place!
The best part of attending a Bay Head School event is walking away learning something I didn't know before. This has always been the case and Peace Day was was no exception. My favorite part is that every student contributes in some way. Every student was a part of this special event with a most important message...kindness and compassion for others. Thank you, Mr. Kennedy for always finding unique and exciting ways to introduce important information to our children.
The peace one day event was a very inspiring night, and it was wonderful to see all of the students learn that there were so many inspirational people that helped to make this country what it is today and the privileges they enjoy because of these great people! thank you Mr.K and everyone who made this night possible.
