Royal Oak Middle School Flying Rainbow Flag for Pride Month
(Royal Oak Schools, June 2, 2021)
Royal Oak, Mich. – Royal Oak Middle School raised a PRIDE flag on Monday, June 1, 2021, to recognize PRIDE month.
“For the first time in Royal Oak Schools History, ROMS is showing its Pride. Happy Pride Month! Thanks, SAGA Club for your amazing leadership!” said Sarah Bockhausen, a teacher at Royal Oak Middle School and SAGA Club co-sponsor.
SAGA stands for Sexuality Acceptance and Gender Alliance and is a student-led group at the middle school.
“We are incredibly proud of our SAGA students,” said teacher and SAGA co-Sponsor Hannah Sells. “SAGA seeks to make ROMS a more welcoming place for everyone.”
“Tuesday’s events were an excellent example of the leadership and vision we have come to expect from students at ROMS,” she added.
Each detail of the day, from the raising of the flag to the welcoming messages on the school sign and sidewalks, was the result of students’ brainstorming, planning, and hard work.
