Jane Addams Middle School values inclusion, empathy and fostering a safe and positive school culture. 



They were recognized as one of this year’s recipients of the Sandy Hook Promise “Start with Hello Week Award”. Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), which is a school violence prevention organization, launched the awards in tandem with the larger Start With Hello Week national campaign to recognize school efforts to prevent bullying and violence.


SHP selected JAMS from hundreds of submissions across the country. Start With Hello (SWH) is a program designed to help students break the ice, overcome social barriers, and get to know one another in order to create and sustain an inclusive culture and school community.  


Congratulations to all JAMS students and staff that made this accomplishment a reality. You make our community proud!
