Three schools in Door County are participating in the international Challenge Day program for the first time this week. The six-hour workshop is facilitated by emotional learning experts to transform through compassion. Sturgeon Bay schools chose their junior class to participate on Monday, while Sevastopol is Tuesday and Gibraltar will be Wednesday. Sturgeon Bay School counselor Jennifer O’Handley shares what the Sturgeon Bay students experienced.
O’Handley says she was impressed with the level of courage and openness the student body participated in the Challenge Day. She says donations were made around Door County to bring the program to the three schools.
