This week is Ally Week. What is Ally Week, you ask? Every year, the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network and students across the country, often as members of Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) or similar student clubs, celebrate Ally Week. Here at VVHS we are focusing this week on educating our school community on ways to be better allies.
What is an Ally? We refer to allies as people who support the LGBT community by advocating against the bullying and harassment LGBT youth face in school. Anyone can be an ally!
What can you do? During lunch, come to the A hall or F hall and create an Ally sign. We are trying to fill the wall outside A120 with Ally signs...we have a great start, but can always use more signs and more allies.
In addition, there will be a brown bag lunch for teachers on Thursday in Ms. Phaneuf's room, A120. The topic presented by our GSA Hawks will be "How to Be a Better Ally to Your Students". And who better to learn from than our students. So I encourage all faculty and staff to come on Thursday and support the students. Dessert will be provided. Contact MS. Phaneuf for more information.
