Central Woodlands named a National Mix It Up Model School

April 22, 2015

For the second year in a row, Central Woodlands 5/6 School has been named a National Mix It Up Model School.  Mix It Up Model Schools embrace respect and inclusiveness as core values—and they “mix it up” all year long.  These model schools have done an exemplary job of organizing, publicizing and implementing “Mix It Up” at lunch days.   The Mix It Up Lunch Day program began in 2002 nation-wide, and seeks to break down social barriers by encouraging students to sit with someone new at lunch.  So, what’s a Model School?  These schools participated in Mix It Up at Lunch Day and followed up with additional events that promote kindness and friendship and encourage students to be more inclusive throughout the school year.  Congratulations Central Woodlands!
