It Starts With Hello at New Paltz Middle School

Teachers, students, and administrators at New Paltz Middle School (NPMS) rocked their Crocs, socks, and Birkenstocks in support of “Start With Hello,” a campaign that teaches and empowers students to end social isolation by following three easy steps:

Step 1: See Someone Alone - Learn how to recognize the signs of loneliness and social isolation.

Step 2: Reach Out And Help - Find out what you can do to help others feel included.

Step 3: Start With Hello - Discover how to break the ice and strike up a conversation.

Way to go, NPMS!
