Temple Middle begins Rachel's Challenge

Temple Middle begins Rachel's Challenge

TEMPLE, Ga. -- The students of Temple Middle School have accepted Rachel Joy Scott's challenge to improve their school and community through acts of kindness and compassion.

It is just the latest of many Georgia schools to join Rachel's Challenge, a nationwide movement named for the first victim of the Columbine High School massacre.

Temple Middle's theme is "Let's Start a Chain Reaction," according to principal Gail Parmer.

"We would like for this theme to transition into our community through demonstrating a caring and nurturing spirit," she said.

Rachel Scott was only 17 years old when she was shot to death on Apr. 20, 1999.

Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

 

The school bell will ring soon and many parents will send a child to kindergarten. This is always an emotional time for parents. For some, it will be sending your first born and for others it will be sending the youngest of four. Kindergarten is an important milestone in your child’s life. Your child’s maturity will grow tremendously this year and you’ll get to see a small glimpse of how your hard work over the past 5 years has shaped your child. It wasn’t that long ago that you held your precious baby in your arms for the first time. Where did the time go? Now it’s time to send that little baby off to kindergarten. For most this will be the first full school day, the first  year to ride the school bus, the first year to have homework, and the first year when peer influences begin to play a role.
