Start With Hello Week at HVS

The Hermosa Beach City School District is partnering with Sandy Hook Promise to improve connectivity and inclusion on our campuses. Sandy Hook Promise was set up following the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary to proactively tackle violence in our schools by creating safe communities.


Young people in every school and community suffer silently because they feel left out, alone, or invisible. Social isolation is a growing epidemic among all ages of school children. The Start with Hello Program teaches students the skills they need to reach out to and include those who may not feel connected at school.

A Start with Hello Week was held at Hermosa View, Vista, and Valley Schools from September 19-23, 2022, to help build a culture of inclusivity, connection, and empathy. Our HVS School Counselors – Cassy Ryley and Troi Boucher, planned a whole week of fun, socially inclusive schoolwide activities for our HVS students.
