Hola! Guten Tag! Bonjour! Hello! Reiffton students spent last week learning lots of different ways to say "hello!" as part of "Start with Hello!" week. An initiative of the Sandy Hook Promise, thousands of schools across the country participated in their own "Start with Hello" activities, which were meant to teach students how to recognize the signs of loneliness and isolation in their classmates. Through fun and meaningful activities, Physical Education teacher Jen Dorta planned a school-wide, spirit-themed week that enabled students to learn how to better connect and unite with their classmates while focusing on the program's three steps: "See Someone Alone," "Reach out and Help," and "Start With Hello."
Check out all of the ways that Reiffton students learned to "Start with Hello" in the video below, as well as what other fun activities Mrs. Dorta planned last week to help our students recognize and celebrate their kindness!
