Goff Middle School Student Council and Gay Straight Alliance on Ally Day.

The Goff Middle School Student Council and Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) joined together to host Ally Day on Friday, a day for all students to show their support of LGBTQ+ students by pledging to speak out against bullying and intolerance.

Nearly 500 students participated either by pledging to be an ally or participating in the Day of Silence, a nationwide event in which students pledge to remain silent for the day, to draw attention to the bullying, shame and discrimination LGBtQ+ students experience.

All students and staff were invited to wear one of the colors of the rainbow as a show of support.

Ally Day concluded Goff Spirit Week, which also included Disney Day, Dress Like a Meme Day, USA Pride Day and Sports Day, sponsored by the Student Council.

“Having both groups come together for a positive message was a great way to end the week, and to celebrate the school spirit that Goff Middle School students exhibit every day!” said Goff English teacher and GSA advisor Rachel Mathis.
