San Marino High School Joins Challenge Day

San Marino High School will be sending an invitation, informational letter and permission slips to its student’s parents to participate in Challenge Day. San Marino High School will be participating in the award winning program Challenge Day on January 14, 15, and 16. The goal of the Challenge Day program is to build community and to help end the teasing, harassment, and alienation that can be a part of the high school experience for millions of teenagers every day. Challenge Day is a powerful and transformational day that can change the way people view each other forever. It is a day of fun, friendship, and new possibilities. This program is for all grade levels. The school regrets that because it can only accommodate up to 300 students, not every student will receive an invitation. However, if a child does not receive an invitation and would like to be considered for participation, San Marino High School advises the parents to have them contact Mrs. Ives in the counseling office.

The school requests parents to review the paperwork with their child. If a parent agrees to allow their child’s participation, the school will ask them to sign the required forms and return to SMHS as soon as possible. Participation is limited to the first 300 students who submit their signed permission slips to the counseling office by Tuesday, December 17 at 3:00 p.m. Any others after we reach our limit of 300, will be placed on a wait list as alternate participants.

For questions or concerns, contact any of the Challenge Day committee members listed below. San Marino High School thanks the parents in advance for allowing their child’s participation in Challenge Day.
