Keeping Challenge Day Real

Welcome Back to the New School Year

From the School Counselor & School Psychologist

 

Our June newsletter ended the school year by listing ten challenges for students, families, and community members—one for each week of the summer: Be Inclusive, Commonalities, Compassion, Friendship, Giving, Gratitude, Honesty, Share the Burden, Sportsmanship, and Trust Yourself. 

 
At the Challenge Day, students and adults were asked if they were willing to make a commitment for change. Since that newsletter, we have been able to review the results of the Challenge Day survey that was given on line to all the students, grades 7-10, who attended Challenge Day.

 
We would like to share these results with you.  We can honestly say that the overall feedback was close to 100% positive.  Below is a sample of the comments students made that overwhelmingly represents the survey responses.

 

 

Question:  During the Challenge Day, did you make a commitment for change?

“be more accepting of people”
 “not judge people right when I see them”
“stop making fun of others, teasing, bullying and excluding people…, “
“help stop bullying”
“stop being sarcastic”
 “be more supportive of my friends”
 “help people out in need”
“understand other people’s lives”
“help people who have trouble at school, to listen to others”

 Question: How can we improve the program?

 

“nothing, because it’s already amazing!”

“keep the program going”

“wouldn’t change a thing”

“more games and breaks”
no way because it helped so much already”

 “allowing more time to hug and more time to talk and get to know each other

 and more dancing!”
“I thought it was good the way it was”

“have the program at other schools”
 “you don’t have to improve, it was so good”
“extremely helpful”
 “loved it”

“make them come back”

“it has had a lasting effect on our school”
“ life changing”
 “it made us whole instead of separated in anger and judging issues plus we

        are closer as 1 whole group..“

 

 

We are hoping that the program can return again sometime in the future.  We are also planning ways to keep the message and feeling of Challenge Day alive in our school.  If you are interested in helping in some way, please let us know.  In the meantime, remember the Challenge Day message…………

 

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world”

Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi
