In September, Justiss Elementary School participates in “Start With Hello” week along with thousands of schools and youth organizations each year. The “Start With Hello” program teaches students in grades K–12 to help their peers in a fun and meaningful way. They put the program in place to introduce students to help other peers showing signs of loneliness and social isolation.
Justiss student council members will be leading the students in multiple activities throughout this week to promote inclusion and kindness. A kickoff celebration was held last Friday at the Justiss Rise Up Assembly.
Other activities that Justiss students will participate in this week are “Be a Rainbow in Someone’s Cloud,” “Mix It Up Lunch Day,” “Kindness Rocks,” and “Morning Greetings with Music and Warm Welcomes.”
