Colonial Community Coffee Hour: — Rachel's Challenge and School Climate

In the fall, Colonial School District adopted "Rachel's Challenge" — a school climate program that encourages kindness and acceptance. So what's been happening in Colonial since then to make sure that students have a positive and supportive place to learn and grow?

The student-led presentation will touch on four items:

  • Third graders from Plymouth Elementary School will talk about Dream Journals — part of the Rachel's Challenge initiative.

  • Colonial Elementary School's No Place for Hate Ambassadors will share projects that they've done this year to qualify as a certified No Place for Hate school. 

  • Colonial Middle School students will share how conversations about Diversity and Inclusion turned to action at CMS. 

  • Members of Plymouth Whitemarsh High School's Friends of Rachel (FOR) Club will share some of its projects and plans for the future.

The presentation on Rachel's Challenge and School Climate will take approximately 45 minutes, followed by time for you to talk with District administrators over a cup of coffee. The Colonial Community Coffee Hour will be held on Wednesday, February 26, 9:30-10:30 a.m. in the District Office General Meeting Room at CES.

Rachel's Challenge was funded in the Colonial School District by a grant from the Colonial School District Education Foundation.
