Stokesdale Elementary School hosted an event at Town Park last Thursday, Sept. 26, to bring together students and their families and teachers and staff. The evening of fun was part of the school's participation in Start with Hello Week, sponsored by Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit group started by families who lost loved ones in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. The program combats social isolation and a lack of empathy in schools that can lead to violence by students who are disconnected from classmates and teachers.


"It's an amazing idea for people in the community to get together and to know one another," said Dana Angel, president of Stokesdale Elementary's PTA.
