The Diversity Club LGBTQ Ally Week statistic today is about vocabulary.  This month, Webster’s Dictionary added 533 new words, including “vacay,” as in “We all need to go on a Vacay right now,” and, “sesh,” as in, “We need to have a Chemistry study sesh tonight!” They also added a new pronoun.  Most of the time we use “he” and “him” for boys, and, “she” and “her” for girls. But now, the dictionary has added “they” and “their” for gender fluid or non-binary people. Remember, if you don’t know someone’s preferred pronouns, don’t assume or guess... just ask them!  Know the facts...be the change!

Come support the Waterloo School District by participating in the 4th Annual Bulldog Color Run/Walk on September 28th. The race starts at 5:30 pm at the Gardner Soccer Fields.

Bring the whole family and join the fun!!!
