Challenge Day Volunteer Opportunity
Dear NRHS parents/guardians,
Nashoba Regional High School is excited to partner this year with Challenge Day to support social emotional learning and community building for our students. This past fall, our 10th graders engaged in the experience and this April, we will be hosting Challenge Day for our 9th graders.
Challenge Day is a research based program that has been in existence for over 30 years, has served over 2,700 schools and over 1.7 million students and educators. It is a powerful experience that helps build empathy and connections, and has been demonstrated to improve school culture and climate.
Part of the effectiveness and powerful impact of Challenge Day is the adult to student ratio. We are looking to expand our adult participation beyond school staff members to parents and guardians as a way to increase community connections at NRHS. If you are interested in learning more about Challenge Day, click HERE. Below are the dates scheduled for NRHS. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please fill out the quick google survey. We are looking for 10-15 participants for each day and people should only sign up for one day. You do not need to be the parent/guardian of a 9th grader to volunteer.
Thursday April 28th 7:40am-2:20pm
Friday April 29th 7:40am-2:20pm
9th graders will be divided evenly between each day
Lunch is provided for all participants
Adult volunteers will lead small “familly groups”
Challenge Day provides all training and facilitation
Parents/guardians should not sign up on a day their own child will be participating
