21 Day Challenges

Our 21 Day Challenges are events that serve as a tool to start conversation and encouragement among our students. Each year the event is focused on one of three main themes – living fearlessly, gratitude or kindness. We hope that with these events students can better understand themselves and know that they are not alone during their difficult times as well as their phenomenal times.

This year we held a 21-day Kindness Challenge, wherein students spoke against bullying and for kindness. We conducted an experiment to demonstrate that even a plant can show sadness through hateful words or actions. We brought in two Aglaonema Silver Bay plants. Both were exposed to same amount of sunlight and given the same amount of water; the only difference was that one of the plants was given love comments on a daily basis and the other plant was given hurtful comments on a daily basis.

By the end of the 21 days it was evident that if words can truly damage a plant it can definitely damage humans, too, and especially a human who is still developing and becoming the best young adult they can be.

Thank you to all who made this challenge possible, and a HUGE shout out to Jeremy Chamo for taking the time to come out to our school and create this phenomenal video.
