PeaceJam, an international organization dedicated to teaching young people peacemaking, conflict resolution, and life-changing skills, is coming to Newtown! This will be a special one-day event exclusively for Newtown middle school and high school students. The main theme of the day will be transforming tragedy, where we will discuss ways that young people in Newtown can take what happened on 12/14 and change any negative, angry, or sad feeling into positive meaningful change. Trained college mentors will come to facilitate workshops, service projects, and more, plus we will hear from an incredible guest speaker who has had experience in changing for the better after a horrific event. This is a very exciting event, but we just need to know:

* 1. What grade are your entering next year?

* 2. Would you be interested in attending this event?

* 3. Are you willing to pay a small cost $25 to attend the event?
