Danbury Public Schools are participating in the Sandy Hook Promise 'Start with Hello' violence prevention programs. A week-long kick off wraps up today, while the program continues throughout the year.
Members of the Danbury fire and police department greeted the 1-thousand Rogers Park Middle School students yesterday morning. Students from the school's S.A.V.E. (Students Against Violence Everywhere) club also participated as greeters. "Start with Hello" kick-off week activities were held in Danbury schools this week. The violence prevention program comes from Sandy Hook Promise.
Shelter Rock School recognized 27 "Students of the Month" for their good citizenship, including participating in random acts of kindness and exhibiting role-model behavior. King Street Intermediate School students 'mixed it up' at lunch by sitting with a different crowd. The idea was to have students meet and eat lunch with different students to make new friends.
The Kindness Rock Garden at Hayestown Avenue School focuses on teaching children that everyone is special and unique, like the individually painted rocks. The yearlong project last year at Hayestown involved the entire school community from students and staff to parents and siblings.
