Mission of LKMS Pride: Students will take a leadership role to raise awareness and improve school climate regarding the LGBTQIA+ community and help to create a safe place to discuss practices and concerns in our school community.
Goal: To spread awareness about the LGBTQIA+ community and empower those in our school community that are LGBTQIA+, to normalize the LGBTQIA+ community in our school and to create a more comfortable, safe space for everyone.
You can join whether you are part of the community, an ally to the community, or if you want to learn about ways to support this community.
