Howland Middle School Joins Howland High School in Accepting Rachel’s Challenge

Rachel's Challenge Banner

 

On January 3, 2019, students at Howland Middle School joined Howland High School students at a Rachel’s Challenge assembly.  Parents were invited to an assembly that evening.

 

Rachel Joy Scott was the first student killed at Columbine High School during the Columbine school shooting on April 20, 1999.  After her death, Rachel’s funeral became the most viewed program on CNN to that date. Afterwards, many people approached her family with stories of the positive impact that Rachel had on their lives.  As her family heard these stories and read more of her writings, they realized the tremendous impact Rachel had in her short life and formed a foundation to help carry on her legacy.

 

Rachel’s Challenge has traveled to all fifty states carrying her story of kindness and compassion.  The speaker issued five challenges that most Howland students took to heart.

 

  • Look for the Best in Others

  • Dream Big

  • Choose Positive Influences

  • Speak with Kindness

  • Start Your Own Chain Reaction

 

Howland Middle School will be focusing on one challenge per week to help improve student relationships and building climate.  For more information about Rachel’s Challenge, go to www.rachelschallenge.org. We look forward to seeing a multitude of positive chain reactions that Rachel referred to in her final school essay where she wrote..

 

"I HAVE THIS THEORY THAT IF ONE PERSON CAN GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO SHOW COMPASSION, THEN IT WILL START A CHAIN REACTION OF THE SAME. PEOPLE WILL NEVER KNOW HOW FAR A LITTLE KINDNESS CAN GO."
