WV students have been meeting after school for the last few months to share experiences with race, ethnicity, gender, and identity. Each week we have conversations about the issues which face our diverse student body. These conversations are so empowering, but also leave us sometimes feeling overwhelmed by the difficulties that some students face. We will meet again on Friday 3/17 and Thursday 3/23 in room 106. Hope you can join us!
There will be an event in the evening on 4/5. Admission is free with tickets. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
I was lucky to be able to go see the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch this weekend. The musical features a strong LGBTQ lead, and it won 4 Tony's on Broadway in 2014 (Neil Patrick Harris played the lead).
We met with the French club on Tuesday and made Mardi Gras masks! So much fun to meet new friends and be creative. Two new GSA members even won prizes for Best Use of Mardi Gras Colors and Most Creative! We will meet again on 3/21 and get to planning the Day of Silence!
Mrs. Smith is going to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch tonight!
There is an Amplify meeting today after school!
