In the words of Fifth Grade teacher, Beth Simpson: “Symbols of Peace: The dove and olive branch as symbols of peace find their origins in Ancient Greece. Their symbolism has continued throughout history, including representing the peace and liberty for all people that Martin Luther King, Jr. championed. A mural of M.L.K. Jr. (“Prince of Peace”) in the Liberty City neighborhood of Miami, Florida, includes a dove holding an olive branch. The fifth grade commemorates the life, love and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. with these creations of the dove and olive branch.”

In addition, the fifth grade created doves in clay doves, some images of which are also below.
