Girls' High News

Hello PHSG Community,

Our first week back has given us a lot to think about as our country struggles through transition and begins to move forward. While many of us were stuck in anger and disbelief at the events that unfolded, hopefully you had the opportunity to process your feelings and develop a plan for moving forward. Clubs are a great way to begin to take action and/or build your skills in arenas that are important to you. Some student groups you may want to join can be found on this sheet. The teacher advisory can be emailed questions or concerns you may have regarding meetings. Some great advocacy clubs include the Change Agent Club, GH Philly Student Union, and GSA. New this week is the Medical Career Association! The first meeting is happening Thursday (meeting link is on the sheet). See the list to find a club that’s right for you.
