Challenge Day


At Jane Addams Middle School we recognize that social-emotional learning is a critical piece to developing our students as learners and caring individuals in the community. Starting this year, we implemented the Challenge Day School's Program. Their motto is "Programs that Transform Through Compassion". As specified on their website- 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.


The resounding success of our initial social emotional workshop is evident in the Addams Student and Staff Survey Results. Please see below:
