The Castilleja Student Peace Dot Team worked in coordination with Jane Chesher of Stanford's Persuasive Technology Lab to create a short welcome video for organizations new to the Peace Dot community and project. Below is our "rough cut," or first draft of the video. We'd love any comments, feedback or suggestions that you might have so that we're able to improve upon this rough cut. Please leave a comment at the video's location over at Vimeo.

In our Peace Dot Workshop, we took a poll of plate usage. These are the number of students for each.
On Tuesday of Global Week we started out the day by watching the viral YouTube video,"Free Hugs," which is inserted below:
Students in the Middle School "remixed" this idea yesterday and did their own "Free Hugs" campaign during lunch. According to their tally, they received 328 hugs! Way to go, students!
In the next few months, student Peace Dot project team members will begin going out to Bay Area businesses and organizations to pitch the concept of peace innovation and Peace Dot. If you are from a Bay Area business or organization of any type and you might be interested in having students come in and give a 20-30 minute project pitch during lunch, please fill out the form below and 0ne of our student project outreach coordinators will get in touch with you soon. All information in this form will be kept confidential and will not be used for future solicitation.

More thoughts and reflections on this wonderful evening will be posted later, but here is the video of the event:
