Celebrate Pride Month at Ignite
We are seeking support to make all students feel safe, welcomed, and celebrated as we honor LGBTQ+ pride during the month of June. This looks like: decorating the hallways with rainbow flags, rotating a playlist that features LGBTQ+ artists, displaying information on LGBTQ+ culture and history that promotes equity on hallway bulletin boards, and hosting a series of pride centered activities that our students have thought of.
Why is this important?
Pride Month is an entire month dedicated to the uplifting of LGBTQ voices, celebration of LGBTQ culture, and the support of LGBTQ rights. As a safe and accepting space, Ignite will reflect our values through our actions and practices as we embrace Pride Month within our school community. Celebrating Pride Month as a school advances the culture of safety and acceptance. Comprehensive socio-emotional learning will be elevated with the inclusion of LGBTQ+ pride for our scholars, faculty, and school community, as many of our students identify under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. By celebrating Pride Month, our scholars will feel empowered to use their voice & express their truth openly.
