Get ready to “Say Hi”
On Wednesday, September 26th, the Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council is promoting the 6th annual “Say Hi Day” in schools across Waterloo Region. This initiative encourages staff and students to begin to break down the barriers that separate us by making the effort to “just say hi” to fellow students, staff and teachers.
Here are some resources available from your school library collections that support “Say Hi Day”.
