  13. 13. ONE OF THE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF OUR PROGRAM IS THE 12 CHARACTER TRAITS • The students learn these traits through an international Character Education program entitled Passport to Peace.
  14. 14. INTERNATIONAL DIALOGUE • It creates an international dialogue based on 12 values: • confidence, • independence, • creativity, • empathy, • commitment, • cooperation, • tolerance, • respect, • enthusiasm, • curiosity, • honesty, and • appreciation
  15. 15. PASSPORT TO PEACE • The students of Wilton Manors Elementary decided that the value that is most representative of them on the mural, is the value of Tolerance.
  16. 16. TOLERANCE STAR MARKED THE CITY OF WILTON MANORS ON THE MOSAIC • Children chose tolerance, because the children at Wilton Manors Elementary have learned that through tolerance, dialogue is possible with an open and respectful mindset • This is particularly important given that we live in such a diverse and global society in which intercultural understanding and respect is an essential aspect in the 21st century.
  17. 17. ONCE THE CHILDREN AT WILTON MANORS ELEMENTARY AND THE CHILDREN IN COBA FINISHED THEIR MOSAIC PIECES FOR THE MURALS TWO REPRESENTATIVES FROM WILTON MANORS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TRAVELED TO COBA TO EXCHANGE THE MOSAIC PIECES.
