BRANTLEY ON CAMGOOD EVENING

BEN, THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS

WERE EXCITED ABOUT GETTING TO

LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH OTHERS

CULTURES AS WELL AS MAKING NEW

NEW FRIENDS.STUDENTS AT KELLY

SPRINGS ELEMENRARY HAD A

DIFFERENT APPROACH TO LUNCH

TODAY. THEY SAT BY PEOPLE THEY

NORMALLY DO'T SIT BESIDE AND

LEARNED MORE ABOUT EACH OTHER

AND THEIR BACKGROUNDS AND

CULTURES. KELLY SRINGS DID IT

TO GO ALONG WITH BLACK HISTORY

MONTH AND EACH GRADE LEVEL DID

SOMETHING DIFFERENT.(APRIL

POWELL)<<IN FIRST GRADE WE PUT

AN ARMBAND ON THEM, DIFFERENT

COLORS, AND EACH TABLE WAS

SETUP WITH A CONE. WELL, WHEN

THEY CAME INTO THE LUNCHROOM

THEY HAD TO SIT AT A DIFFERENT

TABLE OTHER THAN OUR TABLE,

AND SIT WITH SOMEONE THEY DID

NOT KNOW.>>OLDER STUDENTS WERE

GIVEN CONVERSATION STARTERS ON

THEIR TABLES TO DISCUSS WITH

EACH OTHER TO BREAK DOWN SOME

OF THE BIASES AND DIVISION.

THE IDEA CAME FROM A NATIONAL

CAMPAIGN CALLED MIX IT UP DAY

THAT HAS STUDENTS MEET NEW

PEOPLE TO BREAK DOWN BARRIERS.

(JEANEVA MITCHELL)<<MOST

TEACHERS YOU KNOW, DECIDED ON

THEIR ON HOW THEY'RE GONNA MIX

UP THEIR KIDS. THE UPPER

GRADES I THINK BENEFIT MORE

FROM IT BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE

YOU NORMALLY SEE KIDS VEER OFF

TO DOING THEIR OWN THING.>>THE

STUDENTS ENJOYED DOING IT FOR

THE NEW EXPERIENCES AND

FRIENDSHIPS.(KELLY SPRINGS

STUDENTS)<<YEA LIKE SHE WAS

SAYING I THINK IT'S A GOOD

OPPORTUNITY FOR LIKE KIDS TO

GO AROUND AND SIT WITH

DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT THEY

DIDN'T NORMALLY HAND AROUND,

AND GET TO KNOW ALL THE OTHER

KIDS IN THEIR GRADE. OR, HOW

PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT FROM

THEM.>>BRANTLEY ON CAMAND BEN,

THE

3

TEACHERS WERE EXCITED AND OVER

THE COURSE OF THE WEEK THEY

TALKED TO THEIR STUDENTS ABOUT

DIFFERENT CONVERSATION

STARTERS, AND MRS. MITCHELL

SAYS THEY LOOK FORWARD TO

DOING IT AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.
