START WITH HELLO WEEK - September 24th - September 28th

Here is a parent brochure that explains about our week of activities and philosophy of the Start with HELLO program. All elementary schools in the district took part in this initiative.

We had a terrific week of activities and inclusiveness at Tiogue!

Our faculty and staff did a wonderful job of weaving the philosophy and teaching around Start with HELLO into all of their classrooms.

See pictures below of some of our posters, compliment chains, and other displays.
