Rachel's ChallengeChain

MCS Students Start a Chain Reaction

On November 4th, MCS students and community were inspired by the true life story of one girl's dream to change the world. Rachel Joy Scott was a remarkable 17 year-old who became the first victim of the Columbine High School Shootings. This tragedy, which occurred in 1999, claimed the lives of 12 students and a teacher, as well as both perpetrators. Learning about the life and legacy of this young woman through her journal entries and other writings, students, faculty, staff, parents, and community members became empowered to take her challenge--"To Create a Chain Reaction" This program, entitled, Rachel’s Challenge, equips students to bring forth a positive change to their school and to their community in small, but noticeable, ways. This program is provided to school districts by a national non-profit organization dedicated to creating safe, connected school environments where learning and teaching are maximized. Rachel's Challenge provides a continual improvement process for schools designed to awaken the learner in every child. Return to our website to see how MCS students, faculty, staff and community members have honored Rachel Scott and accepted her challenge. Visit and read more from the Rachel's Challenge website
