Challenge Success is an education non-profit working closely with Piedmont schools to prioritize what matters — student well-being and engagement with learning — and to shift attention away from extrinsic markers of success, which we know can negatively affect the social, emotional, and academic health of kids.
Piedmont High School’s collaboration with Challenge Success has led to bell schedule adjustments to allow for more sleep, discussions about meaningful homework, efforts to improve student/teacher connections, therapy dog sessions to relieve stress during finals week, and the development of a Challenge Success student club for students to take active roles in creating positive change in their school climate.
Challenge success is hosting a free virtual parent education event on October 23, at 11 a.m., to share specific tips and strategies for educators, students, and families in this unique time of need.
Hosted by Challenge Success co-founders, Dr. Denise Pope and Dr. Madeline Levine, and featuring keynote speaker Lori Gottlieb, topics include the importance of how we view well-being and relationships, how we can support our students during this new learning climate, and exploring a future vision of connection, equity and meaningful school reform.
