Start with Hello week begins Monday, September 23, 2019. This is in conjunction with our Sanford Harmony Curriculum which promotes social emotional learning. Start with Hello is part of the Sandy Hook Promise, a national non-profit organization founded and lead by several family members whose loved ones were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Start with Hello teaches students the skills they need to reach out to and include those who may be dealing with chronic social isolation and create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within their school or youth organization. Students throughout the school will be participating in various activities with their class such as; stories, coloring, journaling, games and skits.
