Be The Change Challenge Day inspires discovery of compassion and connection at LHS.

Meaningful connections are made as students and staff at LHS are inspired to be "the change."

For about 125 students and staff at Livingston High School, school ended on Tuesday, Dec. 6, with a group hug, a few tears, and a whole lot of dancing. Emotions ran deep as the group rejoiced in the fresh feelings of being safe, loved and celebrated. This was the work of Challenge Day and the Be the Change Movement. The group spent the day breaking down racial and social barriers by opening up to each other through a series of experiential learning processes that showed just how powerfully people can change when they realize just how much we are all alike. The Student Assistance Program department presented the inspiring program. On Thursday, Dec. 8 students at Heritage Middle School will take their turn at increasing personal power and self-esteem, to shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support and to eliminate the acceptability of bullying, violence and all forms of oppression. Simply put to: Notice. Choose. Act.
