Gay Straight Alliance, March 15, 17, 21

The Gay Straight Alliance has some events planned in the upcoming week that I would like to share with you. We welcome all of you to participate as you are able:

Wednesday, March 15: Speaker, Author, and Educator Alex Myers will present to the Upper School Assembly at 11am (Gym) and to the Middle School Assembly at 11:45am (Theater). He will then join GSA for lunch, tour campus, then finish the day in the College Counseling Conference Room in Humanities to be available to any students and employees that would like to have a more personal conversation with Alex. (*more information about Alex is in the News Digest on our website)

Friday, March 17: GSA will be handing out our new MPH GSA rainbow bracelets to all MS & US students during their class meetings. A bracelet will also be placed in every employees mailbox. A message of who GSA is and stands for will be attached to each bracelet. *Note to LS PK-5 teachers: these bracelets will be given to LS students when GSA comes into your classrooms later this spring.

Tuesday, March 21: A representative from the Syracuse University LGBTQ Resource Center, Brittany Lyn Cashatt (“BCash”) will be coming during Advisory (11am in the Theater) to speak with any interested Upper School student about current issues involving the LGBTQ community and their implications on college campuses. They (preferred pronoun for BCash) will then tour campus and have lunch with GSA during their meeting (1:05 p.m. in Humanities 5).
