2014 ALLY Week
  • The Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) works to make OJR a safe and accepting school community for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  All students are welcome to attend monthly meetings.  Topics related to the Gay and Lesbian community, both within and outside of OJR are discussed.  Students are encouraged to share their areas of interest and provide support for one another.

    In working to raise awareness, the GSA's activities include:

    ⇒Guest speakers

    ⇒Monthly themed meetings

    ⇒Presentations to elementary, middle and high school faculties which focus on positive language and anti-bullying

    ⇒Recognition of LGBT History Month (October)

    ⇒Participation in ALLY Week

    ⇒Rainbow Connection Leadership Conference at West Chester University

    ⇒Day of Silence

    Some events have limited space and may require pre-registration.  Please see our Calendar of Events for dates and times.


    GSA Faculty Advisors are Jen Arnst (jarnst@ojrsd.com) and Lynn Mancuso (lmancuso@ojrsd.com).
