Great Falls Parents Speak Out to Protect Elementary Students from “Inclusion”

There is a vast chasm between “including Special Olympics” students and the inclusion of sexually explicit acknowledgment for grade and middle school students.

Great Falls Public Schools earlier this month pulled the recognition of “Rainbow Day” at elementary schools during “Spread the Word Inclusion Week,” citing criticism from parents.

Special Olympics partners with Unified Champion Schools nationwide for a week-long effort each year to make a pledge to be inclusive of students of all backgrounds and abilities. Special Olympics suggests different themes for the week for the schools in the UCS program but largely leaves creative freedom to the districts. Since GFPS is a part of UCS, they held their “Spread the Word Inclusion Week” from Feb. 28-March 4, sending letters home to parents to encourage their children to participate in the dress-up days.

According to flyers sent home with students, March 1 was designated as Rainbow Day to “celebrate diversity.” Kids were encouraged to wear “Rainbow Colored clothes and celebrate the inclusion of everyone.”

According to sources familiar with the incident and representatives from the LGBTQ Center, GFPS dropped Rainbow Day because parents had complained that it “pushed the gay agenda.”

East Middle School teacher Amy Sterling expressed in an email statement the importance of representation in schools, stating, “I have students who are LGBTQ. I have parents of students who are LGBTQ. I have colleagues and friends who are LGBTQ. Representation matters. We are a public school system and must treat ALL of our students, staff, and parents with respect and dignity. Changing the days after they had been decided, flyers sent out and posters made, is a slap in the face to our LGBTQ students, staff, and parents. We must do better.”
