As part of the school’s character education program, Rachel's Challenge, Nassakeag Elementary School students and staff have once again pledged to cause a chain reaction of kindness. Individuals documented their joint effort to create an inclusive environment and promote compassion for others by signing a large banner displayed in the main hallway of the school.
Awareness for the yearlong initiative kicked off during an interactive assembly called “Make a Good Choice,” led by musical storyteller Lou Del Bianco. During the event, Mr. Del Bianco took the audience on an exciting journey through his childhood, sharing the daily joys, dreams and missteps he encountered along the way. Students had the chance to consider what types of choices they would make if they were in his shoes and reflected how those choices would affect their own lives.
