Just a SPECTRUM update if you guys were wondering anymore.

We are supposedly being assigned a supervisor by the administration (Most likely an admin. member themselves).

Once school starts I will be meeting with Mr. Filliponi (God, I need to learn how to spell his name) and we will be discussing what the club plans to do this year. Don't get mad at me, but I guaruntee you we will not be allowed to do anything realtively activist. Don't kill the messenger here.

One last thing, meetings will not be every week. Once a month. Maybe twice a month at the most. If you guys have any suggestions for a day and week of the month, leave it here. I'd like to stay away from Thursdays and Fridays. Thanks.

the school has their reasons and this kind of attitude towards it isn't going to change anything.

if you really want to convince the school to do anything you want you need to get organized (extremely organized!) have a plan have it written down and be prepared to present it to them!

And you have a board! they can meet outside of when the club meets to discuss things! bring things up during the meeting that you think should be discussed during the meeting and everything else should be brought up during the board meeting things.

the day of silence is obviously most likely not going to happen. if you want to do somethign activist try doing something not involving the students in their face. such as try and get more lgbt education to the counselors! try and present the issue of transgender and transexual students in the school to the administration (trust me there is a lot to go on there). not everything activist is in your face with a sign and a pin. get your plan. organize. and execute. check out glsen's website if you want.

anyway, if you want to change anything or even have a spectrum, i recommend you not bitch like the way you are up there because, quite honestly, they have far more power in the situation than us.

and if the once a week thing really bothers you, prepare your opinion and present it at the first meeting. an administrator will be there right? and probably some one high up like mr fillipone to go over the new deal. the way to get to them is to be prepared.

thats that.

good luck
