Rachel’s Challenge at VHS
On Wednesday the 28th of March, Rachel’s Challenge will be coming to VHS to do a presentation for the student body and community. They will also hold workshops throughout the day at VHS and work with small groups to deliver a powerful message about a serious issue facing schools in today’s age.
What is Rachel’s Challenge?
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. This is followed by a separate interactive 90 minute training session involving both adult and student leaders that shows how to sustain the momentum created by the assembly. The assembly creates the “want to” or desire for positive change. The training session teaches the “how to” and ensures that the positive impact will continue.
The community meeting will take place on the night of March 28th starting at 7:00 p.m. in the High School auditorium. All community members are welcome and encouraged to come and share in this message and emotional evening.
