Ally Week Video

Hi Williston,
As some of you may know, this week is national Ally Week which is a week where we can engage in a national dialogue about how everyone in and out of school can work to become better allies to LGBT youth.
The pride club is going to be filming a video to spread awareness and show how much Pride Williston has. If anyone is interested in being a part of the video please let me, Molly Wilder or Erin An know.

Thank you!
Pride Club

2014 Dig Pink

Hello Williston!
This year varsity volleyball is proud to have a new shirt to offer our community to raise funds for cancer research.
They are going to be bright pink, $15 and kinda awesome…

If you’d like one, please email me asap with quantity and size.
We’ll be at our concession stand OPENING NIGHT of the fall play on Oct. 23rd taking Sammy Cards and cash.

We’ll have the shirts there so you can wear them to our Suffield game on Oct. 24th at 5:30!
Also, we’ll be making totally yummy cupcakes, cookies, and our smiling players will be cheerfully awaiting your support.

We’ll have a few shirts at our game for anyone that has family visiting for the weekend, but like last year we know these shirts are going to sell FAST.  Maybe order extra for your family just in case!

See y’all around campus!
