RACHEL’S CHALLENGE
Something very special is about to happen at Olentangy High School and it is called Rachel’s Challenge.  It is a powerful movement that has been sweeping the nation.  Rachel was the first student killed in the Columbine shootings over a decade ago.  Rachel’s family knew, of course, that she was a special young lady but they had no idea she was a revolutionary thinker.  After her death, her family discovered the gifts that she left behind and those gifts are going to be shared with Olentangy High School.  The gifts come in the form of ideas about humanity and thoughts about the world in which we live, including Rachel’s code of ethics.

On October 3, the students and staff at Olentangy High School are going to hear a presentation aimed at inspiring listeners to replace acts of disrespect and negativity with acts of kindness and compassion.  Each person may react a little differently but everyone will be positively impacted.  Individuals may look at themselves a little differently and they may also look at those around them differently.  Many will discover something very important…how powerfully interconnected we all are.  Each thing we say and everything we do has a ripple effect, a chain reaction.  Those in attendance will be challenged to create positive chain reactions.
