In The Spotlight
Students at Crete-Monee High School participated in Mix It Up at Lunch Day on Tuesday, October 31, 2017. Mix It Up Day is an annual event, sponsored by the Southern Poverty Law Center and Teaching Tolerance magazine, that is designed to help students break down social barriers by encouraging them to sit with someone new at lunch. In addition to the lunchtime activities, students often participate in lessons or other activities designed to help them get to know new people and think about issues of diversity and inclusion.
This year, students at CMHS were encouraged to dress in bright lifesaver-candy colors to represent our theme of "Be a Lifesaver". Because we did not have lunch that day due to an early dismissal, the students spent the first three periods of the day discussing bullying, and how to build people up instead of tear people down. The created positive, encouraging messages that are now posted around the school.
We at Crete-Monee High School are proud to support the work of the Southern Poverty Law Center and Teaching Tolerance in breaking down social barriers that separate people. We will continue to strive to create a world where everyone is accepted for who they are, and where the beautiful diversity of humankind is honored and respected.
