Challenge Day Program at M-A High

Original post made by Margie Lawrence, Menlo Park: Downtown, on Oct 16, 2006

An exciting event is coming up at Menlo-Atherton High School on October 30 & 31st, called Challenge Days.

This is the third year that MAHS is offering the program to all incoming freshmen. The Challenge Day program is professionally run for high schools and is designed to unite the members of the incoming
freshmen class. Participation will empower the students to develop the themes of compassion, acceptance, respect, communication and connection amongst themselves as a class and then carry those themes back into their academic classes and the entire school population at large. Since the program was first introduced to MAHS by Andy Stuart, Student Activities Director, the campus climate has already taken a change for the positive, with school spirit at an all time high.

This year faculty members and counselors from around the Bay Area will be attending with the intent of taking this program back to their own schools.

Another exciting happening is that the Challenge Day Organization will be highlighted on an upcoming Oprah Show segment in November.MAHS will be highlighted as one of the schools successfully utilizing this program.
