The Tuttle Avenue Elementary School campus was by far the district’s friendliest from Sept. 18-22. Students hosted Start With Hello Week, a social program which encourages students to reach out to peers who may be suffering from social isolation and to promote a culture of connectedness.
Some of the week’s activities included wearing green to symbolize empathy, kindness and inclusiveness and nametags to introduce themselves to peers. The students wore their favorite T-shirts and tried to find peers with similar interests. Students played Find a Friend Bingo, discussed ways to demonstrate kindness and created a hand leaf to grow the school’s kindness tree. They also wrote positive chalk messages and participated in an extra recess, making new friends along the way.
