Challenge Day was a day for the freshmen and teachers to get together and be open emotionally with each other. Many people would cry and some would try to stay strong, but all in all, Challenge Day is just that. It was a day that challenged your emotions.
What Challenge Day did for me, I’ll remember forever. My close friend and fellow senior Lindzy Bixler, and I would not be friends today without Challenge Day. We used to hate each other over something stupid, but we came to be friends when we shared our vulnerabilities with each other. We’ve been friends ever since.
Mr. Shue is all about molding the culture of the school and making it better. He shows genuine interest in what would make the school a more enjoyable experience for everyone. I wondered where Challenge Day went to ask our principal, Mr. Shue, and he was very easy to talk to about it.
Principal Mark Shue said, “Challenge Day was here for a while but when PRIDE came along, the idea was to take the idea of Challenge Day and apply it to the whole school.”
I am all for making the school a better place for everyone, like Mr. Shue. PRIDE is about making the school a great place to learn where Challenge Day was a way to connect with your fellow students. They are both about changing the school for the better.
