Challenge Day is an experiential social and emotional learning program for Upper Village. It will offer our community the opportunity to ignite a shift toward greater school connectedness, empathy, and inclusivity.
The program goes beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, building empathy and inspiring a school-wide movement of compassion and positive change. We address some common issues seen in most schools including cliques, gossip, rumors, negative judgments, teasing, harassment, isolation, stereotypes, intolerance, racism, sexism, bullying, violence, suicide, homophobia, hopelessness, apathy, and hidden pressures to create an image, achieve or live up to the expectations of others.
Adults who attend should not be parents of learners in the 8th and 9th grade. Adults would support and participate in our UV Challenge Day and share their experiences along with learners and facilitators in small groups. To learn more about the program, see the description below. If you are available to participate and support our community, please contact Ms. Rad.
LV can attend After Care that day until the debrief is complete. You would need to be available from 7:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
