“Start With Hello” is a prevention program that teaches children and teens how to be more socially inclusive and connected to each other. Start With Hello asks students, educators, parents and other community leaders who interact with children to take steps in class, the lunchroom and/or other times in their day to be inclusive and connected. You can begin with 3 simple steps: See someone alone, reach out to help, and Start With Hello!
RMS Administrators and Counselors will be introducing the Start With Hello program to all Individuals and Societies classes this week and next. Students are encouraged to wear green in support of the program on Friday, March 17. In addition, on that day students will be encouraged to eat lunch with someone they do not normally interact with.
