    For ‘Start with Hello’ week, my school challenged students to meet others that they did not know before pledging to continue starting with hello on our banner during lunch. We challenged home room classes to get creative through a ‘Start with Hello’ door decorating contest. Also, during the week, the club conducted a series of presentations throughout the school to clearly explain the importance of the program.

    Miami Southridge Senior supported a series of activities for Start With Hello week. We had a pledge banner which was hosted by Student Services and the Spartan Accompanies Program/Club. Students were challenged to use social media to introduce fellow peers they “do not yet know.” In-class challenges were encouraged to be incorporated into school curriculum. Door decorating challenges also occurred along with the “Start With Hello,” curriculum, in which fellow peers completed in-class presentations. We have evidenced of our activities via Twitter @MDCPSPPrevent and @SAccompanies

    Unfortunately, due to a late start, OPS was unable to perform the Start With Hello activites we had planned! The weather lately has been holding us back but trust me, once we get started there will be no stopping us! #OPSStrong

    East Chapel Hill Highschool has accomplished many things for Start With Hello week!!!!! We kicked off the week by saying hello in various languages and passing out flyers. The first day in the morning we actually had a new student breakfast where we had new students that were new to our district and made them feel welcomed. The Second day we actually hung up sticky notes of kindness all over the walls and lockers and bathroom to give someone a smile. On the third day, we actually hung up red cups at the student parking lot that said start with hello where kids can take pictures. On the fourth day, we green’d out to show our support. Lastly, on Friday, we gave a presentation on the importance of having everyone included in our community because to end gun violence we need a coalition of support to help influence our political crisis that is currently overrun with higher up white echelon men.

    At Kennedy High School we did various things. All week we had our lunch booth with wristbands, music, games, and snacks. All week we also had surveys out and passed out tickets encouraging students to participate. Monday we kicked off with “Hey Day”, this is where we encouraged students to meet new people and say hello to at least 15 new people. Tuesday we had “T-Shirt Tuesday”, we encouraged students to wear white t-shirts and come out to the quad where we took a group photo in the shape of a happy face. Our student leaders also made their own custom Start with Hello shirts and greeted students all day. Wednesday was “No One Sits Alone”, we had Set up twelve tables, designating each table by a month in the year. Students would then go to the table the corresponds with their birthday month and greet and get to know the students born in the same month as them. Thursday we had “Cups N’ Compliments” where Students partnered up with someone they’ve never met and wrote nice compliments about each other on a cup, then they switched cups and filled up their cup with pink lemonade. Lastly, Friday we had “Friendship Fri-YAY!”, we ended the week with a pep-rally in our quad with performances by our cheer team, marching band, and drill team. Students also made friendship bracelets with the new friends they made throughout the week.

    Cutler Bay Senior High will wear GREEN on Monday to promote an inclusive and connected community. On Tuesday, we will pass out ‘Compliment Candies’ to make people smile. On Wednesday, we will pass out surveys, along with wristbands. On Thursday, we will have a Kindness Wall posted in front of the school, so students can write something nice on post-it notes. On Friday, we will create a ‘Chain of Insecurities,’ so students can feel good about themselves and know that they are always beautiful!

    Little Miami is doing a photo booth on Monday at lunch, while wearing blue. (We’re doing it a week later which lands on anti-bullying day.) On Tuesday, we’re doing Time Capsule day where we are putting good things that have happened in a time capsule. On Wednesday, we are writing things in clothespins and giving them to people. On Thursday, we’re doing locker sticky notes. And Friday, GREEN OUT DAY!


  • La-Shanda C. West, Ed.S. September 24, 2018 at 6:10 am

    Cutler Bay Senior High will host events throughout Start with Hello Week. On Monday, we wear green through Friday lunch mix where students sit with someone they don’t know.


  • Izzy W September 18, 2018 at 12:27 pm

    Swansboro High School will be hosting 3 activities throughout the week. These activities are designed to bring students together and raise awareness about Start With Hello. We will have a kindness wall, kindness notes, green out day, and a social media challenge/poster.

    Tuscola High School will schedule our Start With Hello Week as followed. Monday will be Hey Day! WE encourage students to wear a name tag and meet someone brand new. Tuesday, my favorite day for Start With Hello, No One Eats Lunch Alone. Students go eat lunch with someone who typically eats alone and it’s also a great way to make new friends. Wednesday is Be A Lifesaver day, where students can take the pledge to stop social exclusion and receive a Lifesaver candy. Thursday is Compliment Day, cause we all know that sometimes we need a little compliment to get us through the end of the long week. Students can give a written or verbal compliments to people they don’t know. And, last but certainly not least, Friday is Random Acts Of Kindness Day. Students are asked to hold the door for anyone, offer help, buy a drink or snack for someone. If only we could do something like this every week, but I still enjoy this very much! Can’t wait for SWH Week!

    We are still in the midst of planning, but we have amazing group activities planned for inside the classroom and throughout the school! With things such as Kindess Pins, which is where a positive message is written on a clothes pins and various people stick them to items of another person and once that person notices they pass it on, to an assembly for each grade teaching what Start With Hello is all about!


  • Claire Heinly September 16, 2018 at 5:40 pm

    For Start With Hello Week my school is planning a week of action. We will start of Monday and Tuesday by assembling a kindness chain in the main hall where the student body will be asked to respond to the question “What does kidness mean to you?” These responses will then be stapled together to assemble a chain which will hang in the main hallway for the remainder of the year. Thursday we will give name tags to the student body and everyone will right a question on the name tag. Throughout the day students will be encouraged to ask and answer each other’s questions and take a selfie with someone new.
