Matador Challenge
SISD implemented the character education program “Rachel’s Challenge” during the 2011-12 school year based on the writings and drawings left by Rachel Scott before her death at Columbine High School. Her inspiring theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same is designed to create a culture of kindness on school campuses.

SISD Campus Counselors implemented “Rachel’s Challenge” as the “Matador Challenge” in 2013. The goal of the program continues to work towards combating bullying and dispelling feelings of isolation and despair by creating a culture of kindness and compassion. Each campus has a Matador Challenge (MC) Club that works to foster campus kindness and help the community. The district MC Clubs come together at a District MC Community Carnival, which is a fun event designed to spread the message of kindness and compassion.

Matador Challenge Mission Statement:
Matador Challenge will inspire SISD students and the Seguin community to perform acts of kindness and compassion. We view these acts as a way to unite and strengthen our community, while also encouraging students to achieve their dreams. It is our goal and vision that the Seguin community be a place where hate is not tolerated. This will be accomplished by empowering students, families, and the community to live by the Matador Challenge.
