Rachel’s Challenge Going Strong in Three OLSD Buildings

Three of the district’s buildings are participating in a nationwide project called Rachel’s Challenge this year.  Rachel’s Challenge is named after a Columbine victim whose thought-provoking ideas were discovered in a diary after her death.  The program aims to inspire students to replace acts of disrespect and negativity with acts of kindness and compassion.  A friendly challenge is going on this month between Olentangy Orange Middle School and Olentangy Orange High School to remind students of the challenge.  Whenever a random act of kindness is performed, the act is written on a paper chain link which is then attached to a larger chain.  So far, Orange Middle School is winning. Currently, the OOMS chain has over 200 links!
