The Circle Foundation, in partnership with Circle Middle School will present Rachel’s Challenge at 6:30 April 3.

The program is open to the community and targeted for parents with children in sixth grade and above. The program will be held in the CMS Auditorium and is free to attend.

While her life was tragically cut short during the Columbine High School shooting in April of 1999, Rachel Scott’s shining example of kindness and compassion was not defeated that day. Come hear the inspiring story of one girl’s dream being fulfilled over a decade after her death. The presentation is a powerful reminder of the little things we can do each and every day to make the world a better place.

“We’re pleased to have the opportunity to sponsor this program and bring it to the Circle community,” said Circle Foundation President Deb Stephens. “These opportunities don’t present themselves very often and the Foundation is thrilled to bring this positive message to our students and families.”

Rachel’s Challenge is an award-winning and nationally-known program that stresses the positive and teaches the following:

• Dream Big and Believe in Yourself

• Be Kind to Others

• Practice Positive

• Show Appreciation to Those You Love

During the school day on Thursday, the Rachel’s Challenge team will present their program and work with students in the seventh and eighth grades. The students will then be part of the presentation for their parents and the community later that evening.

Again, the program is for parents and their children in grade six and above and there is no charge to attend. For more information, contact Circle Middle School Principal Brenda young at breyoung@usd375.org or 316-778-1470.
