Mix-It Up Day!

First Graders Cobi Tucker and Camille Washington have fun getting to know each other during lunch on Mix-It Up Day, Wednesday, October 9, 2013.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Students got a chance to show their support by participating in Poplin’s version of Unity Day last Wednesday, October 9, 2013. This day was declared “We are All Friends Day.”

Students and staff wore orange because orange is the color for National Unity Day. Students practiced ways to be a good friend to others and to stay away from bullying behavior.
During lunch on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 students mixed it up by sitting and eating with students who were not in their class.

Poplin's School Counselor Jennifer Glahn, said "This gave students a chance to get to know students they don’t normally interact with."
