Presentation and Conversation with Frank Strong

January 29, 2024 – 6:00-7:30pm

On January 29th, GSA will be hosting a Presentation and Conversation with Frank Strong. Frank is an English teacher and one of the creators of the anti-book ban movement, the Texas Freedom to Read Project. Texas Freedom to Read Project supports, connects and mobilizes parent and community member led initiatives fighting for student rights and against censorship and book bans in Texas.

This event is open to the whole GSA parent community. This is a fantastic opportunity to come together to learn about how others are combating recent book bans.

2023-2024 Parent SEED Program

We are excited to extend the SEED experience to our parent community for the sixth consecutive year. Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity (SEED) is a national program that encourages community-wide ownership of diversity and social justice challenges and solutions.

This year, we are combining our SEED framework, which creates conversational communities to drive change, with actionable items for civic engagement. Do you want to read excerpts of some of the Humanities texts our Middle School students are reading? Do you want to practice how to approach conversations about diversity? Do you want to advocate for causes you are passionate about while inspiring younger generations to get involved? Then Book Bans: A Model for DEIB Literacy and Advocacy is for you!

Dr. Lorna Torrado, our DEIB and SEL Director, and Esha R. Clearfield, M.A. and M.P.Aff, 8th-grade parent and policy expert, are joining forces to co-facilitate a workshop that combines diversity literacy with civic engagement.
