Freshmen students from the Jr High had the opportunity to experience Challenge Day on Wednesday, Dec. 18. The overall goals of Challenge Day are to increase personal power and self-esteem, to shift negative peer pressure to positive peer support and to teach students that teasing, violence and all forms of oppression are unacceptable. Students participated in several activities and were given several opportunities to speak out about what's really going on for them and what they need from one another. All students who participated learned a lot and had a great bonding time with their peers and several adults throughout the community. RJH wishes to thank the Cherokee Nation, AIRC and all of the volunteers who helped make this a success for our students.
Seniors Make sure you are checking your emails!! I have sent out several scholarship opportunities. Also, if you need a transcript sent, please email me with the contact information of the college or university.
