Cuthbertson Middle School Recognizes Start With Hello Week

CavsSWH

 

Each year, thousands of schools and youth organizations nationwide participate in Start With Hello Week, a national call-to-action week dedicated to making new social connections and creating a sense of belonging among young people. This week, the staff at Cuthbertson facilitated several activities to recognize and bring awareness of this initiative to our students.

 

Monday: SAY HELLO NAME TAGS

Students were given a name tag to write their name on it to wear around school for the day.  Students were encouraged to greet each other by their first names during the day.

Tuesday:  HUMAN BINGO ACTIVITY

During the CAV period, students were given a bingo sheet to fill up by finding students in class that have similar answers to various questions on the card. 

Wednesday:  Wear GREEN to support Start With Hello Week

Thursday:  UPLIFTING STICKY NOTES

Students were given a sticky note to write an uplifting statement on it.  Students then went around the school to designated spots to post it on the wall.

Friday:  "MIX IT UP" LIFE SAVER LUNCH

When students entered lunch they were given a life saver candy and had to find a lunch table with the matching color to sit down at.  Counselors initiated discussion through various questions asked to the whole lunch group.
