Katie Raissipour and Jessi Wanamaker
Katie Raissipour and Jessi Wanamaker, two freshman at the Pacific Cascade Freshman Campus, showed support for others by participating in this year’s Day of Silence April 16.
The two made short-sleeved shirts to show their support and sported them around campus.
The Day of Silence is a national day promoting tolerance for and recognizing the equality of students who have various sexual orientations. The day focuses on ending lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.
Discovery Elementary School fourth-graders won the state’s Disney Planet Challenge on April 20.
