Stephen Decatur High School has an active GSA group that meets every week after school on Wednesdays in the school library. We invite community members and allies to join us. In an effort to provide information and awareness, the GSA will be providing a weekly fact to be shared on the morning announcements.

This week’s fact is; The term, Non-Binary, is used to describe people who feel their gender identity goes beyond that of the traditional ideals of male or female. Non-Binary people may identify as both male and female or neither male nor female. They may feel their gender can change or that they permanently don’t identify with one particular gender. The GSA club that meets on Wednesdays in the After School Academy is full of knowledge and accurate information for both community members and allies.

You’ve all seen the morning announcements, where we share news and information with you in a professional manner, but DNN is much more than that. As students progress in the program we mix the professional with the fun, so check out some of the fun our Level 3 students do by following us on TikTok under the name dnnstudio.

Gratitude cards will be delivered today during second period, so be on the look out for a special message from a friend! If you forgot to send one, no need to fret! Gratitude cards will be available today for a special LAST CHANCE sale! Send one to a friend, teacher, or even yourself!
