Just a few of the ways we said "Hello!" this week.
On Thursday, students thanked a trusted adult and our trusted adults spread the Start With Hello Spirit! Today, our Wolves took the Promise Pledge to keep the Start With Hello spirit going throughout the year!
On Wednesday we wore green to show our support of reducing isolation as part of the Start with Hello Week. That's Mr. Churchill in the background! 😄
First Spirit Day of the year tomorrow! Wear your favorite sports team shirt!
Tomorrow is Wear Green Wednesday as part of Start with Hello Week! Green Out FKS by wearing green tomorrow, 9/21, as a symbol of unity and solidarity to include everyone.
As we continue with Start with Hello Week, today was Upstander Tuesday. We encouraged students to show appreciation to the Upstanders in our school community by noticing and recognizing someone who reaches out and helps others.

This morning our PTA provided us with one of the best assemblies we've ever hosted at FKS - artist Patrick Dunning's Signature Project. The engaging multi-media program shared with students some stories of the millions of people from around world, includinging our new staff, who contributed their signature to this amazing work of art, 25 years in the making, celebrating the journey of life - its beauty and fragility. You can find out more information on The Signature Project at https://youtu.be/x3xNDAXDT0Y Many thanks to Patrick Dunning and our PTA for bringing us this thought provoking and inspirational program. One third grade student shared, "I was mesmerized and my brain hurts!"

Notice and recognize someone who reaches out and helps others! Wear Green Wednesday: Green Out! Wear green today as a symbol of unity and solidarity with Sandy Hook Promise. Trusted Adult Thursday: Thank a Trusted Adult today. Trusted Adults are always spreading the Start With Hello spirit! Moving Forward Fri-Yay: Make a Start With Hello Promise Pledge to keep the Start With Hello spirit going throughout the year!
