Challenge Day: expectations and experiences
January 10, 2019
This year, over 570 freshmen participated in the second annual Challenge Day held on Wednesday, January 9 and Thursday, January 10. The event was hosted by an organization of the same name. Facilitators from the organization, Los Altos teachers and parent volunteers led students in discussions about topics such as teasing, social oppression, racism, harassment, conflict management, suicide and peer pressure. Challenge Day facilitators attempted to advocate for increased peer acceptance and self-esteem.
The Talon spoke to some freshmen about their expectations going into Challenge Day and followed up with them after the experience.
