Start with Hello Week

Monday, September 20, 2021 to Friday, September 24, 2021

Join our Guidance and Counseling department and Sandy Hook Promise in making active efforts to make connections in our community and help eliminate isolation.

Social isolation can lead to depression, self-harm and other negative effects. We encourage our staff and students to be brave in making connections with their peers and help make an inclusive culture in our district. To make sure no one in our community feels invisible, we are celebrating Start with Hello week, where we will make intentional space for these conversations.

Get involved by reaching out to others, creating chalk messages of hope on driveways and sidewalks, or finding other ways to help spread kindness. Connect with someone and post on social media.

Let's go connect with our community. Start with hello! #startwithhello #YouMatter #TheGISDEffect
