In the fall of 2006, the family of Rachel Scott led an assembly at Waukee High School. Rachel was the first student killed at Columbine. Rachel spent much of her life striving to reach out to others who were new, troubled, or lonely. She wanted to start a chain reaction of kindness. As a result of the assembly, a group at Waukee High School started RAK, which stands for Rachel’s Ambassador Klub and Random Acts of Kindness.
While members of the group did, and continue to, assist with new students, the group focuses on serving our school, community and world. Students find various ways to reach out to others, works to serve and lead school-wide efforts to serve and work to keep the focus on starting a chain reaction of kindness, remembering that the most important thing we do here is treat each other with kindness and respect.
