SPARTA, NJ - The Alpine School's PTO recently funded an assembly titles Rachel’s Challenge. 

Rachel’s Challenge represents five challenges based on the idea that starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion can change the lives of the people around you. The purpose of Rachel's Challenge is to encourage the students to live a life of purpose and to do simple acts of kindness and compassion. And to reinforce with students that treating others with respect is fun and should not just be what we do, but who we are. 

The five challenges include influence, goal setting, journaling, acceptance, and kindness. The Alpine School’s students and faculty all signed a banner to accept Rachel’s Challenge.  

The assembly was organized by Heather Yanoff the School Guidance Counselor.
