We are very excited about this experience, and this email will explain the program and the schedule of events for next week, particularly, August 22.
Rachel's Challenge is a national program started by Rachel Scott's parents as a result of her tragic death at Columbine High School. The message from her code of ethics about creating a culture of kindness within schools has since reached millions of students and staff members. Rachel’s challenges are things like:
· Dreaming Big and Believing in Yourself,
· Being Kind to Others,
· Practicing Positive Gossip,
· Showing Appreciation to Those You Love, and
· Being the Answer.
We invite you to visit www.rachelschallenge.org for more information or view this video to gain a better understanding of the work of the group.
On Thursday August 22 we will be hosting grade-level assemblies in the auditiorium.
- 7th grade-8:45-9:45
- 8th grade-10:15-11:15
We will also host a community event that evening at 7pm to invite parents to play a role in our work at Hixson. You are encouraged to attend. Your presence will be a visual reminder to parents of our commitment to work on this together.
