It's Start with Hello Week at JCD. Start with Hello was begun by Sandy Hook Promise. It is the belief of Sandy Hook Promise that participation in Start with Hello with lessons learned about character development, civic responsibility, and empathy for others will help students reach out to and include those who may be dealing with social isolation. Start with Hello also brings attention to the growing epidemic of social isolation in our schools/communities and empowers young people to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness.

We are looking forward to a week of energy, creativity, and ownership as our students work to create a real and lasting culture of kindness and inclusion.

Everyone is asked to wear a green shirt on Friday; the shirt should be mostly green with minimal writing.
