School Highlight - Imperial Beach Charter
On Friday, January 12, Imperial Beach Charter School hosted a Rachel's Challenge assembly for middle school students. Rachel's Challenge is a non-profit organization that works to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion. Rachel's Challenge is based on the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott, who was the first victim of the Columbine school shootings in 1999. Through her example, Rachel's Challenge is making a positive impact in the lives of millions of people every year. Her father established the organization to perpetuate his daughter's example and the Code of Ethics she wrote a month before her death, which includes the words, "Compassion is the greatest form of love humans have to offer."
IB Charter staff are working with students on specific curriculum and are helping students organize a student-led group for the campus. The school plans to continue their partnership with Rachel's Challenge.
