Wearing blue T-shirts that encouraged others to make positive changes in the world, more than 100 Rocky Point High School 10th- and 11th-grade students and select staff members participated in a series of team-building and sharing exercises during this year’s Challenge Day. 

With the help of program facilitators, participants worked to increase personal power and self-esteem, shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support, and eliminate the acceptance of teasing and violence.

In the spirit of “pay it forward,” participants were encouraged to share the knowledge they gained during the workshop and empower their peers and those in the community to stand united and make positive life choices.

This is the third year the school has coordinated the program. Students were selected to participate based on teacher and adult recommendation.
