IMG_0132Seventh grade students at DeForest Area Middle School participated in a Courage Retreat October 17 and 18.  Courage Retreat leaders from Youth Frontiers, Inc. facilitated several activities that challenged students to think critically about how they treat themselves and others, accept people for who they are, resist following the crowd, and act with moral courage despite their fears.

According to Assistant Principal Kim Christian this dynamic and meaningful program is offered to students each year to help create a more positive school community.
