Mix It Up

Southview Middle School students stepped out of their comfort zone in order to help strengthen our school community by participating in a “Mix It Up” lunch. Students switched seats to connect with new people during their lunch period and try something new. The week leading up to the “Mix It Up” lunch, eighth grade students discussed bullying in health class. Students learned how practicing empathy, building relationships with others, and focusing on our similarities, rather than our differences, can help us overcome intolerance.  The “Mix It Up” lunch was an opportunity for students to practice kindness and respect, so everyone at Southview Middle School feels comfortable and welcomed.
