Rachel's Challenge events headed to several Clear Lake schools
Many Galveston County students and communities will be presented with Rachel’s Challenge to prevent bullying and violence beginning Thursday, Sept. 1.
Rachel’s Challenge is a tour of schools that includes an assembly and community-wide evening event. The message of the assemblies and challenge is kindness and compassion. Rachel’s Challenge is named after, and held in the memory of, Rachel Scott, the first person killed in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999.
The Rachel’s Challenge tour is a way to engage students, parents and other community members in addressing the problems of bullying and school violence. The events begin with video of Rachel’s life and the Columbine shooting that is designed to motivate students to create positive change. After the presentation, training sessions will be held for adults and students.
The tour will begin at La Marque Middle School on Thursday, Sept. 1. It will move to Clear Falls High School on Sept. 7, Santa Fe High School on Sept. 13, Dickinson High School on Sept. 14, Clear Creek Intermediate on Sept. 15, Seabrook Intermediate on Sept. 16 and Clear View Education Center on Oct. 5.
The following schools will also be part of the tour, but dates have not been determined: Texas City High School, High Island High School, La Marque High School, Hitchcock High School and Clear Lake High School.
The event is being sponsored by AMOCO Federal Credit Union, the Galveston County Sheriff’s Department and BP Texas. Anyone interested in sponsoring more schools for the tour or donating to the cause can contact Pete Vargas at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-895-7060 ext. 711.
