An anti-bullying and student empowerment program is coming to Johns Creek High School on Nov. 8, courtesy of the school's PTSA, and the community is invited that evening.
The Rachel's Challenge program was developed shortly after the 2001 shootings at Columbine High School in honor of Rachel Scott, the first person killed in those shootings.
By turning the story of a tragic death at Columbine High School into a mission for change, Rachel's Challenge is helping to create safer learning environments and making a world-wied impact.
Rachel's Challenge is a series of student empowering programs and strategies that equip students and adults to combat bullying and feelings of isolation and despair by creating a culture of kindness and compassion.
The JCHS PTSA is bringing the event to the high school, and all of the students at JCHS will take part in Rachel's Challenge during the school day on Nov. 8. That evening, the community is invited and encouraged to attend a special session at 6:30 p.m. in the Johns Creek High School Auditorium.
