South Davis Elementary came together to make a music video in honor of Rachel’s Challenge. Fifth grade students starred in the video but the entire school was a part of this exciting community building activity. The South Davis Bullying Prevention Coordinating Committee was looking for an extra special way to bring the school together as a part of Rachel's Challenge. The committee decided that a lip dub music video to the song “Give Love” was the way to go! Fifth grade students at South Davis Elementary rehearsed twice a week for a several weeks to prepare for their lip dub debut. On the day of the event, the entire South Davis population came together for the video. The lip dub experience was an incredible community building activity.

Orchard Park Middle School students held a “Storm of Generosity” from September 25th – 29th to benefit schools effected by hurricanes; Harvey, Irma and Maria. Throughout the week homerooms competed to raise the most money to benefit schools effected by the hurricanes. Students rallied around this cause and raised $3,000 in just one week! Executive Council students; Nolan Watson, Mia Popp, Jeremiah Burnett, Bowen Slotman, Ava Wawrzyniec and Ryan Heraty originally came up with the idea to have a fundraiser to benefit schools impacted by hurricane Harvey at their retreat over the summer. From that point the idea evolved as Irma and Maria impacted Florida and Puerto Rico. The Executive Council students planned and coordinated this effort with the help of advisors; Mrs. Kate Cullen, Mrs. Wendy Daniszewski and Mr. Dan Miller. The students created and posted flyers throughout the building, passed out envelopes to each homeroom, collected the envelopes from the homerooms and counted the funds that were raised. The students stayed after school on multiple occasions to make this fundraiser possible. The students hope to make a positive impact on those who have been negatively affected by the hurricanes.
