Rachel's Challenge coming to Bentworth!!
Bentworth AND surrounding communities,
Bentworth is proud to bring RACHEL’S CHALLENGE to our students and community!! Plan ahead to be at Bentworth High School on October 5, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. for an outstanding presentation. Please invite parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. I know you will be moved by Rachel's message. Using age-appropriate programming for K-12, Rachel’s Challenge schools have reported up to 84% reductions in disciplinary referrals. As many as 150 suicides are averted annually, as reported by students themselves. In a pre- and post-attitudinal survey of 9,881 students from socioeconomically and demographically diverse schools across the US and Canada, respondents reported a 282% increase in the number of students feeling safe at school after participating in Rachel Challenge. Bentworth has hosted Rachel's Challenge multiple times over the years and believes it is time for a refresher message. On October 3rd, 4th and 5th, all students will hear an age appropriate message that will inspire kindness and compassion throughout our school district and community. This kindness and compassion is one of many "sparks" at Bentworth that assist in promoting a safe and productive learning environment. I look forward to seeing all of you!
