Starting a Chain Reaction

On Tuesday, October 7, we were able to share Rachael’s Story to our 5/6 students and Rachael’s Challenge to our 7/8 students. The programs are vastly different due to the age appropriate nature but both messages are to find a way to do good to change the world. A parent presentation will be presented in the evening. 

This is the 9th year that Rachael’s Challenge has been at Miscoe Hill along with our Friends of Rachael Club. We are very proud of our students and their attentiveness during our programing. Please help your child by visiting Rachael’sChallenge.org, seeing the message, and encouraging the behavior of helping others. Miscoe Hill has a fabulous population of students that continue to amaze us with their kindness and compassion. Please read below on how Rachael’s Challenge started. 

“Rachel's Challenge includes a series of student empowering, educator motivating programs and strategies called the Awaken the Learner Five-step School Improvement Process that equips students and adults to create and sustain safe, caring and supportive learning environments essential for academic achievement. 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. Shortly before her death 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."

The elements of the school improvement process are designed to create a culture of kindness and compassion and to equip students and adults with resources to insure that their schools are safe, caring and supportive learning environments essential for academic achievement.

Rachel's Challenge was started by Rachel's dad and stepmom, Darrell and Sandy Scott when they realized that the writings and drawings Rachel left not only had an impact on her friends and classmates, but also resonated with students around the world. Although Rachel was a typical teenager who even wrote about her "ups and downs," she had a passion and conviction that she would someday change the world. The Scott family knew her story and passion had to be told to inspire others to make their world a better place.
