    Start with Hello!
    Posted on 09/22/2019
    Start with Hello logoThis week, beginning 9/23, Montlake, along with schools around the country, will be participating in Start With Hello Week, a program from Sandy Hook Promise designed to combat social isolation. Teachers and staff will have activities and discussions that encourage students to think about what they can do to help make Montlake a place where everyone feels included.

    This program teaches students to make a difference with their peers in a simple, fun, and impactful way. They take small but powerful actions to promote connectedness and inclusion, and to identify and help lonely students who are showing signs of social isolation.

    Social isolation is the overwhelming feeling of being left out, lonely or treated like you are invisible. Young people who feel this way may pull away from society, struggle with learning and social development, or choose to hurt themselves or others.

    We continue on Wednesday 10/3 for Mix it Up day at lunch time to meet new friends!
