Just some of the things we do on Student Council...

 

Start with Hello Week

Our first event of the year will take place next week, from September 23-27. Oak will be participating in Start with Hello Week. During the week, students will be encouraged to participate in a variety of activities (see list below). Start with Hello is an annual program created by the Sandy Hook Promise Organization. The Sandy Hook Promise was founded by the family members of students and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School whose loved ones were lost on a fateful day in December 2012. This program was designed to help those suffering from social isolation, and promote a culture of inclusion and connectedness. The student council hopes that everyone will benefit in some way from these experiences. We can’t wait for this week to start!


The different events that student council will be organizing during Start with Hello Week include:

  • Morning Announcements - Each day during the week, student council representatives will share one way that students can help to reduce social isolation and create a connected and inclusive community.
  • Express Yourself Contest - Students will be given a prompt asking them to describe how they can play a role in reducing social isolation and creating a culture of inclusiveness within their classroom, school or community — can answer via essay, poem, song, painting, etc. Entries are due by Friday. The Student Council will share/display entries and award prizes to the top 3 entries. Good luck!
  • Random Acts of Kindness Day - On Tuesday of Start with Hello Week, (9/24/19), we will be having Random Acts of Kindness Day. On this day, Smile Walls will be posted all around the school, in each team hallway. These Smile Walls give students the opportunity to write notes of positivity, kindness, compassion, and encouragement on post-it notes!
  • Wear Green Day - On Friday of Start with Hello Week, we invite everyone to wear green. Green is a color that represents the Sandy Hook Promise, and this activity has the intent of making everyone feel included.
  • No One Eats Alone Day - On Wednesday of Start with Hello Week, we invite students to sit with someone who may be sitting by themselves at lunch. We hope this will help everyone to feel connected to their peers.
