Marion G. Vedder Elementary School welcomed members of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, who presented the “Start With Hello” program for students in Grades 2-5. 

The program taught students how they can make a difference among their peers when helping those who show signs of social isolation. Officers demonstrated the small but powerful steps students can take to create connections and promote acceptance.
