Throughout the month of November, Edison High School’s (EHS) students and staff focused on promoting unique themes important to the overall idea of CARE Month.  CARE is an acronym that stands for Campaign for Acceptance, Respect, and Empathy.

During week one, the EHS Chargers concentrated on building awareness of different challenges students face by participating in activities such as the wheelchair challenge, visual impairment challenge, and hearing impairment challenge.  Individuals took on these disabilities to get a better understanding of what it’s like in someone else’s shoes.

During week two, the school participated in Kindness Week with daily challenges such as giving a compliment to five people, posting something positive on social media, and taking a selfie with a new friend.

The third and final week was “Be the Change Week,” which featured a campus-wide kindness activity and a special assembly with guest speaker, Scott Backovich (pictured below).  During the assembly, Scott begged the Chargers to “be the change,” through engaging, inspiring, and empowered speech.  He also challenged the students’ thinking by teaching them how to use their influence to create positive changes in the world around them.
