Sulphur Springs Middle School Student Council members recently met in the school Media Center to
discuss the upcoming Rachel's Challenge Anti-Bullying Campaign at their school.
Middle School Students Prepare For
Rachel's Challenge Anti-Bullying Campaign
by: Bobby McDonald
Students in Mrs. Jill Sapaugh's 6th grade class were busy making "chains" for the Rachel's Challenge Campaign.
Monday, September 24th, will be a defining day for the students at Sulphur Springs Middle School as they host the Rachel's Challenge at SSMS. "It's an exciting day for the students and one that will bring about a difference in the way they learn to treat each other with respect and embrace each other's differences," expressed Coach Jeff Harris.
Mrs. Jamilyn Hunt's 7th grade class was busy constructing their chain.
Campaign events planned for next Monday are:
What: A 1 hour assembly that motivates students to be encouraging and supportive of ALL OTHER STUDENTS. (NO BULLY SCHOOL ZONE)
When: Monday, September 24
Assembly 1 - For 5th and 6th Graders (8:45-9:45)
Assembly 2 - For 7th and 8th Graders (10:15-11:15)
Assembly 3 - Student Leadership Training (2-3 students from each Advisory) 1:00-2:30
Community Event – 7:00-8:00
To get ready for this event, we would like to begin to make our students aware that this program is coming. Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, September 18, I will be giving you small and simple ways to explain the program and get your students excited about it.
In the meantime, here’s a link for you to watch a short video (several to choose from) if you have never been exposed to the program.
Mrs. Carmen Hammack's 8th graders had their chain made and were looking forward to Monday's events.
