EMS ISD is proud to announce this K-12 initiative for starting a CHAIN REACTION of kindness and compassion this school year. Beginning with the district middle schools, students will have the opportunity to see assemblies conducted by the Rachel's Challenge team and participate in trainings geared toward their respective age groups.For more information about Rachel'sChallenge, please click the links below:Video Links:Each day 160,000 students do not go to school because they are bullied, teased and harassed. By turning the story of a tragic death at Columbine High School into a mission for change, Rachel's Challenge is helping create safer learning environments and making a world-wide impact.
Rachel's Challenge is a series of student empowering programs and strategies that equip students and adults to combat bullying and ally feelings of isolation and despair by creating a culture of kindness and compassion. The programs are based on the writings and life of 17 year-old Rachel Scott who was the first student killed at Columbine High School in 1999. Rachel left a legacy of reaching out to those who were different, who were picked on by others, or who were new at her school.
