Start With Hello Week

What is Start With Hello Week? | Sandy Hook Promise

In Honor of 'Start With Hello' Wear GREEN on Thursday

Why Green?

Wear green as a symbol of unity and solidarity with Sandy Hook Promise. Green is the Sandy Hook Elementary School color and a symbolic color of change. By wearing green Thursday, our school and community is making a promise to Start with Hello!
