Tuttle Avenue was an even friendlier place as students participated in Start with Hello Week, held from Sept. 19-23. Throughout the social program, students were encouraged to reach out to peers who may be suffering from social isolation, as well as to promote a school culture of connectedness.
On Monday, students, faculty and staff wore name tags and addressed each other by name. They also signed the Start with Hello signature banner and pledge to include others. Students then left positive chalk messages at Tuesday’s recess for the following grade level and wore T-shirts with positive messages. Wednesday’s activities included a game of Find a Friend Bingo and wearing a favorite T-shirt that displays something important to each participant. Students wore school gear on Thursday to show Tuttle pride and mixed with other classes during lunchtime. To end the week, students wore green to display commitment to being an inclusive and connected community and participated in games that promoted teamwork and cooperation.
