In the spirit of inclusion, belonging, kindness, and acceptance, NES is reigniting the Start With Hello! program. SWH - which began 10 years ago - aims to help children be more socially inclusive and connected to each other. We are launching the program with a lunchtime activity, inviting all students to sign his/her name to a green construction paper hand. We need volunteers for each lunch shift on Wed 11/29 as well as on Thurs 11/30 from 8:30-10 when we build a bulletin board with the hands. Please check Sign-Up Genius to see if there's a slot or two that work for you. Please join us!

Please remember to CLEARLY label ALL items that get sent into school. If a piece of clothing/accessory has at least a LAST NAME on it, the front office does a great job of reuniting items with their owners.
