Today was Mix It Up Day. We joined thousands of other schools across the country to say “No” to bullying in our school and lives. I had my Lunch Bunch kids help pick the theme, make the bulletin board and photo booth props we used, and hang posters around the school.
Here is our day. . .
Actually, yesterday the kids left these on lockers around the school. It was great to hear the 5th graders ask, “What is Mix It Up Day?” every time they passed a sign.
Wegman’s Grocery Store also donated cookies for all students and staff! (I didn’t get a picture of the cookies, but they were a big hit!)
When students came in, I explained Mix It Up Day. Then they were asked to talk to each and discuss the questions left on their table while they ate. When they were done, everyone grabbed a ‘stache wrote how they would stop bullying and had a picture taken. When they were done, they enjoyed their cookie.
Tonight I made a video of all their pictures. I will play this for them while they eat lunch tomorrow. (For privacy I won’t post the video, but I can’t wait for them to see it!)
