On February 10th, Southern Columbia Area's Middle School students in grades 5 to 7 will be participating in No One Eats Alone, a lunchtime school event that seeks to "reverse the trends of social isolation" by asking students to engage in a simple act of kindness at lunch – making sure that no one is eating alone and students are making an effort to eat with new classmates and peers.  A goal of the event is to facilitate the continued development of a school culture where all students feel included, valued, and accepted by their peers.
 
No One East Alone is a national event being organized by Beyond Differences (beyonddifferences.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to ending social isolation in middle schools. According to the group, social isolation is a problem in every school and it has a direct relationship to incidents of bullying and violence. By reducing social isolation, the group and participating schools, believe much bullying and violence can be reduced.
