Becoming Change Makers

Becoming Change Makers

Nearly 110 Rocky Point High School students and 25 staff members came together this winter to become ambassadors for change as they took part in the building’s Challenge Day program.

The event focused on ways the participants could help to create a world where everyone feels safe, loved and celebrated. Throughout the day, attendees participated in a series of activities designed to promote connections, including lighthearted bonding activities to a powerful “Crossing the Line” activity that provided a visual look at how oppression has affected many in the room and provided comfort to them knowing they were not alone.

In the hopes of paying the lessons of the day forward, Principal Susann Crossan noted that, “The idea is for the students who participated in Challenge Day to share what they have learned to promote kindness and to help build a positive school culture.”
