Valley High School Students Accept the Challenge at Challenge Day 2017
DUBLIN, CA–Last Thursday, a majority of the student body at Valley High School participated in the annual “Challenge Day” assembly in Stager Gym. As in years past, this event is led by two facilitators from the Be The Challenge Movement. Typically, this is an all day event that involves high school students, site staff, facilitators and local volunteers.
The emphasis of the event is to challenge all involved to break down barriers and to promote communication and understanding for all that choose to participate. In general, it ultimately ends up as a fulfilling and emotionally draining experience.
When we returned to Steger in the afternoon, all of the participants were taking part in the “Crossing the Line” experience. At this moment – the epiphany of the day, every person is invited to expose themselves emotionally – to offer an apology to anyone in the room or to offer a hug or thank you.
OneDublin.org would like to commend the students and staff of Valley High School for embracing this assembly. Our continued observation of this event is that it has demonstrated a bonding experience for all involved like no other.
