W.S. Mount Elementary School participated in Start With Hello Week from Sept. 19-23. The week is a nationwide initiative that kicks off the school year by teaching students the skills they need to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness.

During the course of the week, students were encouraged to reach out and include others through a number of activities. Each morning, the school social worker announced what spirit day it was. For each spirit day, students were challenged to complete a task – ranging from eating lunch with a new person to making a friend during recess. In addition, students who speak different languages taught the school community new words during the morning announcements.

The week culminated with a school spirit day where students and staff wore green and yellow. Additionally, students and teachers created a tree made of paper hands to be displayed in the main hallway as a symbol of unity.
