We are thrilled to congratul8 two of last year’s 5th grade Project Citizen groups who focused their work on LGBTQ issues: Audrey, Malaya, Evie, Eddie and Jonathan in Kate Naaman‘s class, and Frances, Scarlett, Sam B., Mia, Ludo, Mae and Jasmine in Angie Nelson‘s class. A subset of those groups — basically, completely on their own! — wrote a grant application to support a Genders & Sexualities Alliance (GSA) after-school group at PS 8/MS 8. We just learned that they won! Our guidance counselors, Cara Spitzer and Lauren Coe, will be talking the lead on starting the GSA at MS 8. Ms. Angie and a group of 5th graders may become involved later in the year. Go student activism!
