Phoenix Union schools host Rachel’s Challenge events

  • |
  • Craig Pletenik/Phoenix Union High School District

Four schools – Alhambra, Carl Hayden, Camelback and North – held Rachel’s Challenge events, January 27-30. 

Each campus hosted two assemblies for high school students, hearing the story of Rachel (a Columbine shooting victim) and challenge students to create a culture of kindness and compassion on campus. 

A core group of students went through Peer Leadership Training to empower them with tools and exercises to help foster a culture on each campus. 

Each school also hosted a community event, giving parents and the community an opportunity to experience Rachel’s Challenge.
