District Digest

Glen Ellyn School District 41

September 21, 2018

Message from Superintendent Paul Gordon


The official national Start With Hello Week is September 24-28. We know too well that there are young people who suffer silently because they feel left out, alone or invisible. That’s why I feel it is so important to continue our Start With Hello campaign throughout the school year in District 41.

Start With Hello Week activities raise awareness and educate students and the community through a number of activities and projects. Each school in District 41 will focus on a few Start With Hello activities to launch starting on September 24. We will be part of a nationwide movement to empower young people to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness!

Thank you for continuing to help us spread kindness beyond our school walls!

Dr. Paul Gordon
