Start With Hello honored again

Savanna Gregg/Burnet Bulletin


Burnet Middle School teacher and Interact coordinator Sara Te and the BMS Interact officers are presented with the Start With Hello Community Reach and Sustainability award by Sandy Hook Promise representative Carleen Wray on Thursday, Sept. 6. BMS was awarded this honor in recognition of their efforts to help put a stop to school violence and self harm among students and their peers by participating in the 3rd Annual Start With Hello Week in February of this year. Start With Hello Week is a program developed by the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, which was formed by parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012. The program is designed to teach students about being inclusive to everyone, with as simple a statement as “hello.” Start With Hello Week at BMS for this school year is September 24 – 28.
