- Rachel's Challenge - Community Night Presentation (Ages 13 & Older)
- 1/28/2019, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
- Mars Area High School Auditorium
The Mars Area community is invited to attend “Rachel’s Challenge” Community Night presentations to be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 28, and Thursday, Feb. 7, at Mars Area High School auditorium. (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)
The programs, sponsored by Cashdollar & Associates LLC, are based on the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim of the Columbine High School tragedy. "Rachel's Challenge" works to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness and compassion and, in turn, to promote a safer, more connected school community.
“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… You just may start a chain reaction.” Rachel Scott wrote in a school essay shortly before her death.
The program will offer Rachel’s story; the story of her brother, Craig; as well as authentic news footage and an actual 911 call from the Columbine High School tragedy. Therefore, the program is not recommended for children ages 12 and younger.
Mars Area School District will offer childcare for kids ages 5-12, provided by members of Mars Area High School’s Interact Club, Key Club, National Honor Society and Student Council and District personnel, from 5:45 to 7:45 p.m. in the high school gymnasium.
