Start With Hello Week 2023: September 18-22

Join us in a special spirit week! “Start with Hello” is a national call-to-action week dedicated to making new social connections and creating a sense of togetherness. Students and trusted adults across the country engage in activities to celebrate the many ways to be an upstander and learn to reach out to include others. This week celebrates kindness, connection, inclusion, empathy and belonging! 

Sandy Hook Promise’s campaign encourages children to 1) see someone alone 2) reach out and help and 3) “Start with Hello!” At the end of the week, the kids will sign the Start with Hello Pledge and design a handprint.
