Here are some of the ways the grant money has benefited EHS in the past several years!
$10,000 to benefit
Challenge Day, which is a nationally program designed for students. The Challenge Day program is created to build connection and empathy, and to fulfill a vision that every child lives in a world where they feel safe, loved, and celebrated. Challenge Day is more than a one-day program. Challenge Day goes beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, building empathy and igniting a movement of compassion and positive change, known as the Be the Change movement.
Although it is a full-day program, Challenge Day goes beyond a one-time event. It builds relationships with students, teachers, mentors and volunteers. Challenge Day not only builds on traditional anti-bullying efforts, but establishes empathy and ignites a sense of compassion and positive change.
Edgewater students and teachers have seen Challenge Day and the “Be the Change” movement transform EHS students’ lives. It has had a strong impact uniting students and promoting acceptance within the school.
The EHS Foundation board is proud of its support for such an impactful, life-lasting program.
