Start With Hello Week (September 18-September 22, 2023)
Start With Hello Week celebrates the amazing work of educators, students, and community members in building socially inclusive learning environments for all students. The Sandy Hook Promise created this week to promote inclusion and to support students who are showing signs of loneliness or social isolation. Loneliness is the overwhelming feeling of being left out and social isolation is not having frequent interactions with friends. This week will remember how important it is to be kind, inclusive and reach out to others in our school community!
