Justiss Elementary has been participating in "Start with Hello" week along with hundreds of schools and youth organizations across the United States. The "Start with Hello" program teaches students the skills they need to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness, and encourages them to reach out to and include those who may be dealing with chronic social isolation. Justiss students were led in multiples activities by their student council to promote inclusion and kindness. Activities included "Hey Day," where students were encouraged to say hello, handshake or high five other students. Also, "Eat with Someone New Day," "Look for Someone New to Play with Day" and "Our Oath to Kindness Day"!
