CHALK4PEACE-Open Alternative School 2015


The Open Alternative School of Santa Barbara, CA held its 2nd CHALK4PEACE on June 2, 2015. Alejandra Tashma organized the schoolwide event with the theme of "Save the Ocean Save the Planet"; and more than 160 CHALKSTARS shared their inspirational messages of hope, peace and concern for the environment.















 OAS practices a multi-grades creative team effort that utilizes the older students being mentors for the younger ones. Another school that practices this sort of C4P teamwork in S. California is the Gooden School of Sierra Madre.image


OAS is joining CHALK4PEACE again this September as part of the International Day of Peace. We celebrate the Open Alternative School for their efforts to show the world what peace means to them!
