LPSD-38 Hosts “Rachel’s Challenge” program at PRHS Thursday, Aug. 12, 2010

Notice to community of upcoming public event hosted by District 38 (from Campus Messenger email):

August 9, 2010

Hello D-38 Families:

Parents and the public are encouraged to attend a free evening program on August 12th that is promised to make our community stronger, and improve the lives of our children. On the first day of high school this year, D-38 students in grades 9-12 will participate in a school assembly program motivating them toward words to live by: kindness and compassion. Following the assembly, some students will have the opportunity to attend a training session to carry the message on among their peers in the future. The evening program will share that inspiration with families.

The program is called Rachel’s Challenge, founded by the family of Rachel Scott, a student killed in the Columbine High School Shooting in 1999. Rachel wrote a series of essays challenging youth to change their culture through thoughtfulness and consideration for others. The program is focused on empowering youth at Lewis-Palmer and Palmer Ridge High Schools to create a welcoming campus environment where all students have a sense of belonging.

The public is invited to join families from all D-38 schools on Thursday, August 12th at 6:30 p.m. at the Palmer Ridge High School Auditorium for the one-hour program. (The evening program is geared toward adults and may not be appropriate for children under age 12.)

Anyone with questions about the program may contact the Assistant Principal at either school — Seann O’Connor, PRHS (719) 867-8600 or Sandi Brandl at LPHS, (719) 488-4720.
