Friends of Rachel (F.O.R.) Club and Champion Zone Kids (C.Z.K.)

CMS students met after Rachel’s Challenge to start planning ways to spread kindness and compassion at the middle school and our community. During the planning meeting, students who expressed interest in being a part of the F.O.R. club decided to meet Monday mornings from 7:00-7:30 a.m. three times a month and the last Monday of the month after school from 3:00-5:00 for projects, lessons, and games! The next F.O.R. meeting is Monday, 9/17/18 @ 7:00 a.m.

Initial student led projects this year will include:

  1. Chain link challenge recognizing acts of kindness. Students will cut strips of construction paper to provide to classrooms and to decorate envelopes to hold the links for CMS and to share with elementary schools
  2. Day of kindness with a pep-rally, handprints, and activities in October

In addition to our F.O.R. club, all students also have the opportunity to become a Champion Zone Kid (C.Z.K.) at CMS.

Qualities of Champion Zone Kids:

  • Respects Themselves and Others

  • Values Differences in Others
  • Speaks with Kindness and is Courteous
  • Helps Those Being Bullied
  • Includes Those Who are Left Out

  • Rises Above the Crowd to Be a CHAMPION!

C.Z.K. will have a table setup during lunch on Friday, 9/21/18 with more information and a sign up sheet.

Any adults interested in helping support F.O.R. or C.Z.K., please contact the CMS Main Office.

A Story of Inspiration, Courage, and Kindness

What is Rachel’s Challenge?

Rachel’s Challenge exists to equip individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, discrimination and negative activity with acts of respect, kindness and compassion.

The program is dedicated to the memory of Rachel Scott, the first student killed in the tragic shootings at Columbine High School in 1999. Hailed as one of the most powerful intervention programs ever shared in public schools, Rachel’s Challenge provides a stunning and inspiring story that holds the power to transform lives.

More than 23 million people have heard Rachel’s story in live settings around the world. It is reported that, as a result, at least eight school shootings have been prevented and more than 500 suicides have been averted.
