Rachel's Challenge

The purpose of the elementary programs is to encourage elementary school students to live a life of purpose, do simple acts of kindness to make their school a better place. There are multiple resources for teachers to sustain the impact of Rachel’s stories in grades K-5 throughout the school year.

Stories from Rachel’s life and adaptations of her writings exemplify her belief that small, deliberate acts of kindness could have an impact on the world and a profound effect on those around us. All topics are presented in age-appropriate positive language. The comprehensive curriculum component includes options to tailor a program to compliment the school’s schedule and teaching environment.
