At 6 PM on November 22nd, CHHS will host a community event in the auditorium where parents, students, and community members can attend a presentation given by Rachel’s Challenge. The presentation is based on the journals of Rachel Scott, a student killed in the Columbine High School shootings, and her mantra that acts of compassion can start a chain reaction. For more information, please see the preview video here.
There will be assemblies during the day for students, and parents are encouraged to attend this evening event. More from the Rachel’s Challenge website:
Rachel Scott was the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Her acts of kindness and compassion coupled with the contents of her six diaries have become the foundation for one of the most life-changing school programs in America.
Powerful video/audio footage of Rachel’s life and the Columbine tragedy holds students spell-bound during a one hour school presentation that motivates them to positive change in the way they treat others.
That evening the Rachel’s Challenge speaker conducts a powerful session with parents and community leaders. This session is similar to the assembly program and ends with a specific challenge to parents and community leaders, showing them how they can reinforce the decisions their youth are making. Entertainers, politicians, sports celebrities, educators, and even two Presidents of the United States have been impacted by Rachel’s Challenge. However, students are the target audience and they have proven that they will respond with positive words, attitudes, and actions. Your school will never be the same after being exposed to Rachel’s Challenge!
