In celebration of Say Hello Week, students and staff at Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School took part in a number of engaging activities designed to open the lines of communication.

As part of the initiative, daily activities promoted the notions of being a good friend and cultivating a culture of positivity within the school and community. For example, students created gratitude jars with slips of paper noting what they are most thankful for in life and others wrote kind descriptions about their classmates on colorful boards with their names inscribed. 

The message of the week was reinforced during an assembly with singer/song- writer Jared Campbell. During the event, Mr. Campbell performed several original songs and shared stories of encouragement dealing with matters individuals encounter on a daily basis.
