To the WV GSA of 2016-2017, thank you for an amazing year. Your courage and strength have been inspirational to me. You guys have done more for the students at this school than you will ever know.
You make a difference every day in the lives of those around you. You make working at Waubonsie the best job ever! I am so lucky to be your sponsor, and I can't wait to see what awesome things we will do next year.
To our incredible seniors: you guys rock. Keep on changing the world, but don't forget about us! You are welcome to come back and visit any time!!!
Our last meeting will be Tuesday 5/18. All are welcome to come! There will be food! We will congratulate and thank our seniors one more time!
We are all ready to go for tonight's Lavender Ceremony! Please join us for this special night, honoring our LGBTQ+ and ally seniors! The Ceremony is at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium. We will have a performance from Pink Notes and our Keynote Speaker is Owen Daniel-McCarter, the executive director of the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance. All are welcome to attend! We hope to see you there!

Another awesome meeting with BSA (Black Student Alliance) and OLAS (Organisation of Latino American Students) today! Celebrating Diversity month! Shared stories and asked questions. Also tried to get people hyped about Amplify!
We will have TWO MEETINGS NEXT WEEK! I know!!! So many meetings! Tuesday 5/2 and Friday 5/5. We need to discuss planning for the Lavender Ceremony, and debrief Day of Silence in more detail.
