    Day of Silence 2023

    Day of Silence
    Our GSA Club and other interested students will participate in the National Day of Silence on Friday, April 12th. Silently and peacefully, they will protest anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ+) bullying, harassment, and name-calling. The vow of silence represents the silence faced by LGBTQ+ people and their allies each and every day.

    Typically, on the Day of Silence, participants hand out “speaking cards” explaining their reasons for remaining silent, rather than speaking. By taking part, students teach one another about diversity, respect, and safety for all students. They gain leadership skills, provide a valuable service to our school, and empower themselves by realizing they CAN make a difference in the world.

    Show your support by wearing pride rainbow colors this Friday.
