5th Graders Participate in Peace Walk

Last week the 4th and 5th graders participated in a ceremony to heal the world with the Tibetan monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery. The students listened as the monks sang on the Taos Plaza and walked with the group to Kit Carson Park. At the park they participated in a prayer circle for peace.
