As part of the GOMS BULLY PREVENTION MONTH, Rachel’s Challenge Program
was presented to the student body on Tuesday Oct. 7.  Rachel’s Challenge is an exciting program that takes a tragic event at Columbine High School and looks for positive ways to encourage students to make a difference on their campus in the way we treat others.  Students were challenged to make a pledge to spread kindness and compassion throughout the school.
