Mix It Up Lunch
Thank you for your willingness to volunteer for Mix It Up Lunch!
Students consistently identify the cafeteria as a place in their school where divisions are clearly—and harshly—drawn. So we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice. When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away.
During this lunch we will ask parent volunteers to help hand out popsicle sticks to mix students up and help student facilitate conversations with new peers.
Thank you for your help!
