Sarah Spuz ‘17- On November 30th through December 1st, the Romeo High School tradition of Challenge Day returns for another year.
Throughout the day, students unite and are given the opportunity to share their stories with one another. This six and a half hour event addresses some of the most common high school issues including negative judgments, teasing, and harassment, as well as deeper issues surrounding homelife and individual questions and concerns.
This shows students that they are not alone in facing their problems. The main goal of program founders, Yvonne and Rich Dutra-St. John, was to create a program that brought everyone together. “If we settle for tolerance, we have failed. Our goal is love,” they said in a statement on challengeday.org.
Students who want to take part in this year’s event can pick up a permission slip available in the main office, due back to the main office no later than November 13th.
