The Greater Jasper School Corporation is continuing its Rachel’s Challenge campaign that began with middle and high school students in the Spring.
Rachel’s Challenge is based on the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim in the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in Littleton, Colorado.
The message of the program is to be kind to each other because one act of kindness can start a chain reaction of acts of kindness that can change culture.
Students are encouraged to engage in five challenges: get rid of prejudice; dream big and write goals; choose positive influences; speak with kindness; and tell the people you care about most what they mean to you.
All students in kindergarten through fifth grade will be participate in a Rachel’s Challenge presentation Wednesday, August 31st.
A community event is planned for that evening at 6:30 pm in the Jasper High School auditorium.
