Rachel's Challenge Presentations
Georgetown ISD Department of Guidance and Wellness is thrilled to host
the Rachel’s Challenge program at all of our secondary schools at
the end of September. The dates of the presentations are as follows:
9/26 EVHS

9/27 GHS
9/28 Benold
9/29 Tippit

Rachel’s Challenge exists to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion. Rachel’s Challenge is based on 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 is making a positive impact in the lives of millions of people every year. Superintendents, principals, teachers, parents, and students bring Rachel’s Challenge into their schools because of escalating problems such as: bullying, student isolation, teen suicide, discrimination, school violence, and increased disciplinary actions. Through powerful presentations, trainings, community events, and professional development, Rachel’s Challenge provides the sustainable solution. 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 Challenge renews our hope that our life has meaning and purpose. Rachel’s story gives us permission to start our own chain reaction of kindness and compassion, which positively affects the climate in our schools and communities.We believe this presentation will have a positive impact on our students, faculty, and community.  If you have any questions or would like more information about the program, please contact your child’s school or visit the Rachel’s Challenge website www.rachelschallenge.org.
