Organized by the counseling departments, both of West Islip’s middle schools implemented the Start With Hello program this year, which teaches students the skills they need to reach out and include those who may be dealing with chronic social isolation and create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within their classroom, school and community.

The program, coordinated by Sandy Hook Promise, included icebreaker activities such as a “Hey Day” in which students filled out name tags to initiate saying hello to each other, a “Be Kind Day” in which students posted positive affirmations in a Kindness Corner for all to see and read, an “I Am” wall, photobooths, friendship chains and scavenger hunts. Students from the Helping Hands Club and Diversity Club volunteered their time to assist with the activities.

“It was a wonderful week of meeting new friends, making connections and building community,” said Beach Principal Andrew O’Farrell.

The counseling department at Udall recently conducted a week’s worth of activities for National Kindness Day. During lunch, the students participated in making a video in which they said kind things. Udall showed the video to the school at the end of the week and had each class create the hashtag #YouAre…, write compliments on pieces of paper and post the papers outside each classroom. As students walked down the halls, they had a chance to see random compliments posted on the walls.

The friendly rivalry between Beach and Udall continued on the cross-country course on Oct. 18. After a season of racing at Belmont Lake State Park, a home course was set up on Udall’s field to showcase the talents of the schools’ athletes, arranged so that the race would be viewer friendly for parents, students and the high school varsity cross-country teams that came down to support the middle school program.

“The athletes took advantage of the temperate weather and put out some blazing fast times for the new course,” said Athletic Director Tim Horan. “As with any Udall-Beach competition, once the race ended, great sportsmanship was shown by both teams.”
