On Wednesday, March 20, 2013 students at Rocky Hill High School and Griswold Middle School will participate in assemblies presented by Rachel’s Challenge, an anti-bullying and violence abatement program.
Rachel’s Challenge is based on the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott who was the first victim of the Columbine school shootings in 1999. Rachel’s inspiring story provides a simple, yet powerful example of how small acts of kindness and acceptance motivate us to consider our relationships with the people we come in contact with every day.
The purpose of the Rachel’s Challenge program is to inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness and compassion. More than 2.5 million students annually experience Rachel’s Challenge and have the opportunity to accept the challenges, modeled after Rachel’s life and writings.
Rachel’s Challenge will also present an evening parent program from 7 to 8 p.m. in the RHHS auditorium. All RHHS parents are invited to attend and experience this unforgettable presentation. Rachel’s Challenge promotes a positive message for all.
