Mix It Up Day

Mix It Up at Lunch Day is an international campaign that promotes a safer, more inclusive school community by encouraging students to cross social boundaries and is being held at DW on Tuesday, Oct 22.

"Leaders in Learning" students, who are leading this event, need your help to ensure its success. We need 10 parent volunteers per grade.

If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up through the PTO Membership Toolkit. For questions, contact Sandy Switzer at yodabear98@aol.com or Kelly Miller at kellyamiller77@yahoo.com.
