At Mariner we believe that all of our students deserve a safe, supportive, and welcoming enviroment where they can learn and grow. This week is Mariner Middle's Gay Straight Alliance's Ally Week. Ally Week is a student intiated and run awareness campaign intended to promote the ideals Mariner holds dear.

An Ally is a person who supports equal civil rights, gender equality, LGBT social movements, and actively helps to create a safe place where peers can come together and be themselves.

There will be an information table in the cafeteria Tuesday through Thursday where students and staff can ask questions about Ally Week and sign a pledge to be an Ally this year and help all Tritons feel safe, welcomed, and loved.
