In Middle School, students participated in an afternoon assembly -- led by students Zoha P., Madison P., and Leelu L. with the mentorship of Clarissa Shinn and Irie DeLilly -- that honored and uplifted women in our community. Their event featured fascinating facts about influential women throughout history, scholarship about the impact of Title IX on girls in athletics and what it means to be a feminist, and an intersectional look at women with diverse identities. Grades 6-8 came together for this event.
Then, Upper Schoolers Elle K. and Cameron M. -- led by their Persian Club advisor, Afsaneh Nury -- developed MUS advisory content that highlights the Nowruz holiday. Within, they offered a rich history of the cultural celebration, student paintings, poetry, and a musical piece.
