Good morning everyone. Thank you for allowing me a few minutes to say hello, frame Allyship Week and why it means so much to me.

First of all, I’m Ms. Miyashima. Most of you know me, and if you don’t, hello! Some of you know me as a PE, Wellness or Weights teacher, some know me as a College Counselor, you might know me as a Soccer Coach, and you all definitely know that I’m an Alumni (I can’t wait for Class XII to join me and acquire the “alumni” title in a month).
