During the week of Mar. 5-9, students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School celebrated Mix-It Up Week. Each day of the week sought to celebrate and respect the differences in others. Activities throughout the week included reading Marisol McDonald’s book “Doesn’t Match”, decorating jig-saw puzzle pieces to represent that differences unite a community, wearing mix-matched clothes, mixing it up in the cafeteria by sitting with a new friend, and TJL staff mixing it up through experiencing a day in the life of a colleague. The week proved to be a useful life-lesson for students to practice celebrating differences, and that schools are no place for hate.
