Principal Denitzio’s Message

Dear families,

I hope this message finds you well, and I hope that all moms had a Happy Mother’s Day.

This past Monday evening, we hosted a forum for families put on by Greater Boston PFLAG. We had a great conversation about the ways in which schools can support transgender and gender non-conforming students, hearing from a panel that included students, educators, and the parents of gender non-conforming students. It was a thought-provoking conversation. Thank you to those who attended. There are a few pamphlets from PFLAG available in the office.
