Elmira School Starts Year With Rachels Challenge Focus On Kindness

The challenge is named after Rachel Scott, one of the students killed in the Columbine shooting.

Scott often journaled about the impact she wanted to make on the world.

School leaders at Broadway Academy have seen the benefit from past presentations including a welcoming committee and an effort to ensure no student sits alone at lunchtime.

The National Center for School Engagement claims every day 160,000 students nationwide skip school for fear of being bullied.
