Challenge Day

I heard about this from Oprah, no, I do not watch Oprah. A teacher showed me a segment today. It was an experiment called Challenge Day. The point of it is to help break down social groups in schools that help decrease bulling, racism, and general hard life that comes with high school. They went to a school in Boston and the responses that came from the students were quite surprising. Deep sercrets were told, barriers were broken down, and friendships were built. It was a life changing day. We have thought about doing this at our school and I think it would be great. I don't think that we have as many problems at our school that some others have but it would be a great way to bring people closer. We do have many different social groups, racism isn't that much of a problem though and niether are fights or gang activity. If we do do this activity I am curious to see what would come out of it.

Two ways you can go to the website or you can get people from the organization to come down and put it all together.
