*Mix It Up is an international campaign that encourages students to identify, question and cross social boundaries. Students move out of their comfort zones and make connections with someone new over lunch. This simple act has profound implications and promotes healthy, welcoming school environments.

*Unity Day
Make it ORANGE and make it end! The school community shows togetherness against bullying and UNITES for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion by wearing orange. Unity Day, sponsored by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center since 2011, encourages safe and support schools.
