Amesbury students pledge to not bully


At the start of the assembly, the AHS students held a brief refresher presentation of Rachel’s Challenge, which came to the high school last year and was well received by the student body. The students were reminded of Rachel’s five challenges: To look for the best in others, to dream big, to choose positive influences, to speak with kindness and to start your own chain reaction.

Rachel’s Challenge tells the story of Rachel Scott, who was killed in the Columbine shootings of 1999, and aims to bring positive change to young people and to quell school violence, bullying and teen suicide. An AHS Friends of Rachel Club dedicated to promoting Rachel’s message was established following the presentation and meets after school every Tuesday.
