Mix It Up at Lunch Day was launched over 15 years ago by Teaching Tolerance in an effort to “encourage students to identify, question and cross social boundaries.” On Wednesday, January 16th, Lower School students in grades 1 through 5 will be connecting with someone new over lunch.
Under the themes of “make new friends” and “discover each other,” 1st through 5th grade students will each be assigned a new table. Each table will consist of participants representing 4 different grades and a familiar faculty/staff member. Students at each table will ask and answer questions designed to get the conversation started and develop an appreciation and understanding of one another. Don’t forget to ask your children how they made a positive connection with someone new when they mixed it up at lunch.
