Rachel's Legacy Assembly

November 13, 2012 @ Burlington High School

Rachel's Challenge Assembly - 2011

Last year, the Mediapolis Middle School and High School held a Rachel's Challenge assembly at our school. This assembly was focused around the story of Rachel Scott whose example of kindness was brought to light when she became the first victim in the Columbine High School tragedy. Rachel's Challenge showed the positive impact we can have on those around us. Rachel's Challenge encouraged participants to examine their own lives in the light of 5 challenges:

  1. Look for the Best in Others
  2. Dream Big
  3. Choose Positive Influences
  4. Speak with Kindness
  5. Start your own Chain Reaction

Rachel's Legacy Assembly - 2012

Rachel's Legacy builds on Rachel's Challenge by exploring the legacy that Rachel left in the lives of the people around her. Though a series of stories told from the the perspective of those who Rachel touched, Rachel's Legacy encourages participants to consider the following 5 challenges:

  1. Leave a Legacy of Kindness
  2. Show Compassion
  3. Practice Pre-Acceptance
  4. Learn from Your Mistakes
  5. Forgive Yourself and Others


On Tuesday, November 13th Mediapolis Middle and High School students will be bused to Burlington High School for the Rachel's Legacy Assembly. The student assembly will begin at 10 am. On the evening of the 13th there will be a Rachel's Legacy Assembly that is open to the public at 7:00 pm in the Burlington High School Gym.

This program is being offered to the students of Mediapolis, Burlington, Notre-Dame, West Burlington and Danville schools through efforts and contributions from Des Moines county businesses and civic organizations.
