Challenge Day 2017
Freshmen participated in Roslyn High School's fifth annual Challenge Day from November 15-17. The goal of Challenge Day is to create a school environment in which every student feels safe and supported by peers and adults. Two exceptional group leaders from the Challenge Day organization guided participants each day through a series of activities designed to build trust and respect; to help students better appreciate the impact of their words and actions on others; to make everyone aware that our experiences and struggles are shared by many of those around us; and to awaken a strong sense of responsibility for the well-being of others.
On each of the three days, one-third of the freshman class was joined by teachers and staff volunteers from the high school and other schools in our district, as well as senior peer leaders, for an engaging and at times very moving day-long experience.
The lessons of the day are reinforced through follow-up sessions, assemblies and other activities through the course of the school year.
Challenge Day has reached more than 1.5 million students in 2200 schools in North America and Europe over the last 30 years.
Roslyn High School thanks these sponsors for their generous and ongoing support of Challenge Day: Roslyn READ Foundation, Marching Band Fans, Roslyn Bulldogs Booster Association, Roslyn High School Parent Faculty Association, and Organization of Class Councils.
