"Start With Hello" at LCMS

"Start With Hello" at LCMS
Posted on 09/26/2018
On Wednesday, September 26th, Louisa County Middle School used a unique, new strategy to help students get to know each other better. At lunch, students sat at tables based on the month they were born, and they also wore name tags. By mixing up seating at lunch, students were able to build new friendships with students they don’t get to interact with as often. The activity is part of the school’s “Start with Hello” campaign, which encourages students to take small but powerful steps to promote togetherness and inclusion. "It's helpful to include everyone together, and that's the whole point," said Annie Floyd, the sixth-grade counselor at LCMS who organized the event. "We're all connected, we all belong here, and we're all important." Students also signed a “Start with Hello” poster and pledged to say hello to more and more students. "Little activities like this can go along way, and we want to lead by example," Floyd said. "We're hoping that other students will see this, and in future lunches when they see students sitting alone, will use that as an opportunity to invite them into the group." Great job, Bobcats!
