School civil rights team trains

LISBON FALLS – The Lisbon High School civil rights team spent a productive day in training at Augusta on Nov. 7.

Members received education on the Maine Civil Rights Act and current issues in Maine. Strategies and ideas to use to encourage a safe and welcoming environment at school were taught during workshops.

Students participated in group sessions for team-building and shared ideas for projects in the school.

Students rounded out their day with lunch and a presentation by drummer, Shamou. The civil rights team meets on a regular basis in the school library. For more information, contact Judith Lashman, school librarian and civil rights team adviser, by calling 353-3030 or e-mailing [email protected]
