WalkUP on March 14

As you consider your 17-minute participation in the March 14, 2018 National School WalkOut, I’d ask you to consider two things…
1. Are you truly informed about the purpose of the National School WalkOut? If not, seek knowledge, not attention or an excuse:
2. Consider a WalkUP, not a WalkOut. It might take more than 17 minutes, but the positive results will last MUCH longer! How does that work?
  • WalkUP to the kid who sits alone at lunch or on the bus, smile, and ask him/her if you can sit with them. Invite a friend or two to sit with you and introduce them. Make conversation.
  • WalkUP to that student who always sits alone in the corner or in the back, sit down next to them, smile, and introduce yourself.
  • WalkUP to the kid who causes disturbances in class and ask how he/she is doing today.
  • WalkUP to someone who has different views than you, and get to know them as a person. You might be surprised at how much you have in common.
  • WalkUP to someone you don’t know in class, sit down next to them, and make a new friend.
  • WalkUP to someone who you haven’t seen in class lately, smile and introduce yourself, and ask if they would like some help getting caught up.
  • WalkUP to the kid who dresses differently than you do, smile, and sincerely compliment him/her on something about their outfit.
  • WalkUP to 14 students and say hello, ask how their day is going.
  • WalkUP to 3 adults (administrators, security staff, teachers, assistants, substitutes, bus drivers, cafeteria staff, custodial staff) and thank them for what they do at your school every day.
  • WalkUP to someone who seems lonely and just say hello.
  • WalkUP to the kid who is often bullied or picked on, smile and introduce yourself.
Find a way to make a difference at Enloe High School today — and any day! You can help by breaking the cycle of students feeling alone, uncared for, unfriended by making connections and being a friend.
