Friends Of Rachel (F.O.R.) Club
Friends of Rachel is an open club in which anyone can participate and join! Our goal is to create a campus climate that is safe, welcoming, and filled with kindness and compassion. A cultural change in our school can be accomplished by filling our school with kindness. This happens through large and small acts of kindness performed for groups of people and individuals. It is all about creating an Atmosphere of Kindness (AOK) by performing Random Acts of Kindness (RAKS)!
About Rachel Scott
Rachel Joy Scott was born on August 5, 1981 and died tragically on April 20th, 1999 at age seventeen. She was the first person killed in the Columbine High School shootings.
Rachel chose to live her life by always treating others with kindness and compassion. Shortly before her death, she wrote an essay in which she stated, "I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion then it will start a chain reaction of the same." Rachel focused on showing kindness to new students, students with special needs, and students who were bullied. Friends OF Rachel was developed and named after Rachel Scott and works to support students and spread kindness throughout our school.
Rachel's funeral on April 24th, 1999, was attended by over 2,000 people, all of which came because she had affected their lives in a positive and moving way. To learn more about Rachel Scott, please click here: http://www.rachelschallenge.org/big-picture/meet-rachel/
