St. John Bosco Catholic School was named a 2014 Mix It Up Model School by Teaching Tolerance, the educational project of the Southern Poverty Law Center. The school was recognized for its exemplary efforts to foster respect and understanding during the 2013-2014 school year.
St. John Bosco Catholic School is one of 76 schools across the country receiving the honor. The 76 schools recognized are among the 6,000 schools that participated in Teaching Tolerance’s Mix It Up at Lunch Day, an effort to break down social and racial barriers that can lead to conflicts and bullying. As part of the school’s “Be the Change” anti-bullying activities in the fall, St. John Bosco Catholic School hosted Mix It Up at Lunch Day Oct. 29. Students had lunch with different grades and groups to engage in conversation and get to know others.
