We Need You! Adult Volunteer Request for DESA’s Inaugural Pride Celebration

Greetings Ellington Community!

As you may already know, the GSA and I have been hard at work preparing for the first-ever DESA Pride, June 5 – June 11, 2022. This event has been made possible by the Mayor’s Office of LGBTQ Affairs. The week is going to be packed with exciting activities, performances, and tons of free swag! With that, we could really use your help.

Specifically, we need ADULT support for the following major events:

  • Sunday, June 5, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM: School-wide decorating
  • Friday, June 10, 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM: Field Day (set-up/supervise various stations/tear-down); actual Field Day will run from 2:00 PM-5:00 PM

Currently, this request is for adults only, not students. If you can make yourself available for any/all of the above, please sign-up here: https://forms.gle/dCjKKCPuMwMvvjU98

Thank you so much! It’s going to be an amazing week, and I really hope you can join in and help ensure DESA Pride 2022 is a blast!!!
