This awesome and insightful event will be taking place next week and help is needed!
On Tuesday, an organization called ARCh will be doing an assembly about bullying and tolerance. The 12th grade assembly will be at 8:00, 11th at 9:45, 10th at 12:45, and 9th at 2:05. We need 2 volunteers from each grade to introduce the group, and everybody else to act as leaders and help engage people in the presentation.
On Wednesday, all homerooms will be doing an activity related to the presentation, and we will introduce the "mix it up at lunch" program that is taking place on Thursday. Everyone needs to help out in their homeroom on Wednesday.
On Thursday during lunch, we will be leading an activity called "mix it up at lunch", which encourages kids to sit somewhere else during lunch and meet different groups of people. For each lunch period, 2 volunteers are needed at a table where people can sign a pledge to live a tolerant lifestyle, and everyone else is needed to encourage people to participate in the activity. There may be an incentive later for people who sign the pledge.
Some of these spots have already been filled by S.M.O.R.E.S./Diversity club but there are still a lot of open spots. Anyone who can help in any way should come to the S.M.O.R.E.S. meeting right after school on Monday in room 203 (Mrs. Whaley's room). If they cannot make it to the meeting, volunteers should sign up with Mrs. Perkins-Peterson in Student Services. We need all the help we can get. Volunteers might get a cool shirt from helping with the event.
Also, this event is expected to get major media coverage from different newspapers and TV stations.
