Monta Vista High School will be holding a Challenge Day on Feb. 1: an entire day dedicated to emotional safety, social relationships, educational achievement, cross-cultural connections and bullying prevention.
Challenge Day has taken place in more than 2,200 schools throughout 48 U.S. states, in 10 countries and has reached millions of students and adults in schools, communities and televised programs, according to the Challenge Day website. Supporters of the program include Oprah Winfrey, Alanis Morissette and Arnold Shapiro.
The day is typically held in a school gym, includes music and interactive exercises, led by two trained facilitators.
According to the Monta Vista High School website, “the goal of Challenge Day is to help stop the teasing, alienation and lack of empathy that is so deeply a part of the school experience for millions of young people every day.”
The Monta Vista High Challenge Day will be held in the gym from 7:35 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Nearly 100 students, 25 teen leaders and 30 staff/adults will be in attendance.
