Day of Silence held on Friday, April 15th

The Day of Silence was Friday April 15th.  We had approx 123 students participate and take a vow of silence for the day.   Below is the announcement we read on Friday.

The GLSEN Day of Silence is a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Students take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT.

Today our deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by anti-LGBT bullying, name-calling and harassment. We believe that ending the silence is the first step toward building awareness and making a commitment to address these injustices.

Think about the voices you ARE NOT hearing today

Madison Hilton and Nicholas Wallace awarded 2016 Lifeguard Scholarship Award

The East End Seaport Museum is pleased to announce that two of Greenport’s High School students are the recipients of our 2016 Lifeguard Scholarship Award!
Madison Hilton (sophomore) and Nicholas Wallace (senior) were selected to receive the scholarships, which cover all training expenses for Lifeguard / CPR certification.
Given the applicants we were presented with, it was a tough choice. All applicants had to complete a standard application, as well as a personal essay.
There will be a public presentation during the EESM’s grand opening May 27th, 2016.
Thanks to GUFSD for helping to circulate the initial scholarship information. We had a great response from Greenport and are happy the recipients seem so well-suited for this opportunity. This is our first year offering this scholarship, and we hope to make it an annual award.
