Choctawhatchee HS Mixes It Up

Choctawhatchee High School’s Link Crew and Leadership classes recently sponsored a “Mix it Up” day during lunch where the students wore anti-bullying t-shirts that they designed. 

All students were given a color during their SPEAR class and they were asked to find that color table in the cafeteria.   Students were asked to sit at their designated table so they could meet new friends. 

“We had tootsie pops on each table with a note attached that said ‘Everyone should feel Pop-ular,’ said Becky Brewer, one of the Link Crew sponsors.  “We played music and they all seemed to have a great time.  One Link Leader told me that she asked a boy at her table how he liked ‘Mix it up’ day and he said it made it easier to find a table.  He moved here last year and said he had been bullied since the 8th grade.  He said the people at Choctaw were so much nicer!  It made her day.”
