No One Eats Alone, Beyond Differences' most popular program, </p><p>is a stand-alone event that takes place during lunch at school. During your event, students make a difference on their </p><p>own school by making sure that everyone is included at lunch </p><p>and students sit with new friends and classmates. </p><p>Beyond Differences is carrying a simple message to cities across </p><p>this nation: We believe that a new day is dawning. A new day in </p><p>which all kids feel included, valued and accepted by their peers. </p><p>At Beyond Differences we are dedicated to helping teens and </p><p>schools make social inclusion the new reality. </p><p>Superintendent Conway said, while there is an official national </p><p>No One Eats Alone day in February, the message is every </p><p>student and staff member is paying attention to this every day </p><p>and all day, beginning on the first day. </p><p>CEA UniServe Representative Mr. Breen said, As a parent, a </p><p>former teacher, and an advocate for the teaching profession, </p><p>Im proud to see Derbys teachers encouraging all students to </p><p>reach out to each other and build positive, caring </p><p>relationships. </p><p>Dr. Nieoff, Executive Director "The Connecticut Association of Schools applauds the Derby Public Schools for their </p><p>commitment to the No One Eats Alone program. We know that loneliness can be a tremendous barrier to a child's </p><p>development- emotionally, socially, mentally and physically. Loneliness can be not only stressful, it can be lethal. To see </p><p>the Derby faculty and staff, in their entirety, dressed in their t-</p><p>shirts, excited to embrace this initiative is heartwarming. What </p><p>this initiative will do for any child who might feel alone will be </p><p>lifesaving. Congratulations Derby Public Schools!" </p><p>Derby High School Staff proudly wear their No One Eats Alone t-shirts on the first day. </p><p>Derby Middle School Staff proudly wear their No One Eats Alone t-shirts on the first day. </p>http://www.beyonddifferences.org/</li></ul>
