Thankyou+ Rachels Challenge

Hello McSwain families!

I wanted to reach out and say thank you to all students and families that came out and supported our float during the Atwater High School Homecoming Parade! As this was a first for our community, it was amazing to see all of the Mustang Blue and White! Great job, Mustangs!

Rachels Challenge

We are excited to bring the program Rachel's Challenge to our school on October 6th.

Rachel's Challenge is based on the beliefs of Rachel Scott. Rachel passed away during the events at Columbine High School. Rachel believed that kindness and compassion go a long way when you express it to others, no matter who they are.

Rachel's Challenge is a proactive measure in helping our students focus on the kind things we do instead of the negative things. Only Grades 5-8 will be introduced to the Columbine tragedy at an age-appropriate intensity level. If you do not wish for your student to participate, an alternative educational opportunity will be provided.

Students and faculty pass out chain links daily when they witness an act of kindness. These links go onto a school-wide chain for all to see. These chain links of kindness are built throughout the school year and are used to show kids how easy it is to be kind. The school's climate is transformed just by focusing on the positive efforts we make for one another.

The five challenges will be: Accept and Include Others, Choose Positive Influences, Be Kind, Dream Big, and Start a Chain Reaction. We know that this is going to have an amazing impact on everyone.

We look forward to creating our chain reaction of kindness with all students, staff, and families! More information will be sent next week.
