On October 12th, MCHS staff and student body experienced a very intense, powerful and moving day. We learned about Rachel's Challenge, inspired by Rachel Joy Scott, Columbine victim. "It was life-changing," said Ycnan Casillas, freshman. MCHS was so inspired by Rachel's movement that we will implement a FOR (Friends of Rachel) Club chapter. The club's mission will be to put into practice everything they learned in the assembly and foster a permanent culture of kindness and compassion on their campus. (rachelschallenge.org)
"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." -Rachel Joy Scott
Students signed the "I Accept Rachel's Challenge" banner and made a commitment
to live by Rachel's example of being compassionate, kind, positive and starting your own chain reaction.
