Friday, April 20th is the National Day of Silence.
The Day of Silence?s purpose is to bring attention to Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender name-calling, bullying and harassment and effective responses that help build a healthy community. The day is most successful when schools and students work together to show their commitment to ensuring safe schools for all students. Students participating in the day of silence will have a card with them indicating their support of this day. While students prefer to remain silent, they know they may be called upon in class and should respect the wishes of their teachers.
Any student that wishes to participate may pick up a card in student services. You must have this card with you on Friday.
Also, there is no GSA meeting today after school. Check facebook for the next meeting.
