Mix it up @ Lunch
MIX IT UP @ JLA is coming on October 28th at lunch! We are asking students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. We will provide interactive activities to help students start conversations with someone they don’t normally eat lunch with. Participants will receive a MIX IT UP wristband!
Before the event students will be given a colored dot to place on your ID, then on MIX IT UP day, students just sit at the table that matches the dot color! So, plan to MIX IT UP at lunch on Tuesday, October 28th!
Teachers are encouraged to MIX IT UP with students too!
