    The School City of Hobart has accepted Rachel’s Challenge!

    Throughout the first week of September our students participated in events to help teach and encourage positivity, kindness and to dream big! Together, we will start a chain reaction!

    The Elementary School's participated in Rachel's Story which encourages students to say kind words and do simple acts of kindness and to show that the actions of just one person can make their school a better place!

    The Middle School participated in Rachel's Impact which introduces Rachel Scott and tells an appropriate version of the Columbine story. Presentations include her family and friends sharing how Rachel affected them in positive ways. Both encourage students to be aware of the impact of their words and actions on the lives of others and to set goals for a purposeful life. Together, we will start a chain reaction!

    The High School participated in Rachel's Challenge which helps students understand the power of appreciating others and realize that they can start a chain reaction of kindness and compassion to positively change the culture in their school. Powerful video, music and interaction with a Rachel's Challenge certified presenter describes the Columbine High School tragedy and the life of Rachel Scott.

    Rally for A Cause!

    The Hobart Brickies put on a rally to express how kindness can "Cause a Chain Reaction", which are the words of Rachel Scott. The schools made paper chains with names of students and acts of kindness on them. Together they linked the chains up and walked the track! They also expressed the importance of being kind to our Earth and celebrated Recycling! It was a beautiful day, a great celebration and a inspiring act of kindness from all of our Brickies. :)
