All GJCS students in grades K - 5 will be participating in the Rachel's Challenge presentation on Wednesday, August 31, 2016. Rachel's Challenge is based upon the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott, who was the first victim of the Columbine school shootings in 1999. Through her example, Rachel's Challenge strives to positively impact the lives of millions with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion.
Rachel's inspiring story provides a simple, yet powerful example of how small acts of kindness and acceptance motivate us to consider our relationships with the people we come in contact with every day. Rachel's story gives us permission to start our own chain reaction of kindness and compass ions, which positively affects the climate in our schools and communities.
A special Community Event will be held for interested parents and community members on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the JHS auditorium. All are invited to attend this special event.
