HERITAGE MIDDLE SCHOOL

#CHOOSEKIND

Over the past several months, students at Heritage have been participating in activities and presentations so that they can show their Heritage 5 PRIDE in their actions, words and deeds.


On February 5, a presentation will be provided for all students from Rachel’s Challenge. Rachel Joy Scott was the first person killed in the Columbine High School shooting on April 20, 1999. But that was only the beginning of the story. After her death, many students that Rachel reached out to shared stories with the Scotts about the profound impact her simple acts of kindness had on their lives; even preventing one young man from taking his own life. They soon realized the transformational effect of Rachel’s story and started the non-profit organization that is Rachel's Challenge today. In the afternoon, students worked with the presenter creating a Friends of Rachel Club to continue to spread kindness and empathy amongst our student body.


For the remainder of the year, the Friends of Rachel Club will be doing random activities to help students maintain their commitment to Rachel's Challenge when they signed the banner.
