During our meetings, we will play games, do team-building activities, and talk about what’s going on in our lives. Through our club, we hope to build a judgment-free community of friends and allies who support one another. It does not matter how you identify; anyone can attend and everyone is welcome. If you have any questions about the GSA, please see Mrs. Zaugg in Room 332 (Pacific Team). We look forward to seeing you at our first meeting after school on Wednesday, January 30th.
