Ilil il! | I:1 IEill|llgll l milimeeuumm: m lle II ,!1, 34 FRIDAY, JUNE 19 - MONDAY, JUNE 22, 2009 NEWS Cape Gazette Letters )) Challenge Day organizers say thanks to all Dana Orton and I would like to thank all of o donors as well as facilitators for supporting our event, Challenge Day, to help eliminate bullying at Cape district schools. We are pleased to report that almost 300 middle and high school students participated in "Challenge Day" activities, April 22-24. The newspaper articles that have been printed on Chal- lenge Day capture only a small part of the emotion and enthusi- asm of these days. For these students, Challenge Day was a life-changing experi- ence. As our superintendent, Dr. George Stone said, "Kids who have been bullying others will never bully again." And those who were victimized left the day with new feelings of self-confi- dence and hope. The teachers and students who participated in Challenge Day have reflected on the day, and the students, in their own words, described how Chal- lenge Day can have an effect on their lives in the future as well as the newfound compassion for oth- ers that they are trying to bring to all aspects of their lives. The impact of Challenge Day was so powerful that we intend to repeat it every year at both middle schools and at Cape Henlopen High School. Since it would be beneficial to move this program to the fall, to reach students earlier in the school year, our next Chal- lenge Days will take place later in 2009. We would like to extend many thanks to those who con- tributed financially to Challenge Day. Without their support Cape Challenge Day would not have been possible. We would also like to thank all who attended each of our fundraising events. Again, without your help, our students would not have been able to go through this life-changing experi- ence. Donors include Barbara Orton; Russell Palmer; Gall Mack; Cape Henlopen Education Foundation; Cape Heulopen High School; Wayrme Paskins ( Delta Sigma Theta); Adam and Heather Kind]; Scot and Kim Husbands; C.T. Sports - Greg Skoglund; Cape Heulopen School District Food and Nutrition- ]udy Mitchell; Mariner Middle School Honor So- ciety; Dr. Bahtiarian; Hampton Inn - Rehoboth; Wawa- Michelle Hysock; Friendly's; Big Fish Grill - Mr. Sugrue; Grottos Grand Slam - Alison MacKenzie; Giant - Re- hoboth; Movies at Midway;, Ice .-Brake; County Bank- Karen Mum- ford- Rehoboth.
