Rachel's Challenge

In 2014, Piqua City Schools implemented a district-wide program called Rachel’s Challenge. On April 20, 1999, Rachel Joy Scott was the first student killed in the Columbine shootings. Although her life was taken early, her legacy lives on through schools and communities all over the world. The program is designed to maximize student learning by creating a chain reaction of kindness and compassion. This year, 100 students were selected to participate in the Chain Reaction Day.   Students can continue participating in the Rachel's Challenge activity by being involved in FOR (Friends of Rachel) Club. As a friend of Rachel, the student’s main responsibility is to show kindness to everyone, embrace diversity, make positive choices and help those in need. Everyone is encouraged to take part in such a wonderful program. To learn more, please visit: http://www.rachelschallenge.org/. If you are interested in joining FOR Club, please contact Mrs. Muhlenkamp at muhlenkampl@piqua.org.
