Dear Grand Valley Parents/Caregivers,
We are pleased to inform you that next week, September 13-17, your Mustang will be taking part in Start With Hello Week. The main objective of this week is to teach our students the skills they need to reach out and include those who may be dealing with social isolation and create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within their classroom, school or youth organization. Start with Hello was started by Sandy Hook Elementary: Sandy Hook Promise: https://www.sandyhookpromise.org/
Over 12,000 schools from across the United States participate in Start With Hello Call To Action week to highlight and spread the message of the power of Start With Hello’s three simple steps:
1. See Someone Alone
2. Reach Out and Help
3. Start With Hello
There will be many activities throughout the week to increase social inclusion in our school community to make sure no one is left out and everyone has a friend. Detailed schedules are attached. Thank you for supporting Grand Valley students as they make our school and community such a wonderful place to be! Go Mustangs!
