From the Academics Pillar: Important News About October Advisory Topics

During advisory on October 16 and 23, the freshman and sophomore classes will participate in discussion sessions about gender stereotypes and affirmative consent. The juniors and seniors will do the same later in October. As a school, we believe that students must have a greater understanding about these areas in order to live lives of significance in service to others.

We understand that conversations about gender stereotypes and consent are not inherently about sex. Instead, they are about the worth and dignity of the individual, values deeply embedded in the Christian faith and EHS's mission.

Through these sessions, we will begin to give our students the skills and knowledge they will need to assertively say no to behaviors or actions they do not agree with. We will teach them that when someone establishes a boundary, we must respect it in order to preserve the dignity of the person saying no. We will emphasize the importance of consent in healthy relationships.

We invite you to ask your students about the advisory discussions and to continue the conversations at home.  If you have questions, please contact Associate Head of School Nancy Eisenberg at neisenberg@ehshouston.org.
