The club Student Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) organized an Upper School assembly on Oct. 27 about sexually transmitted diseases. A group of performers from Kaiser Permanente put on a skit to inform students about the effects that having an STD has on the infected person and the people with whom they associate. The skit provided information on how to stay protected from STDs, how to deal with them, and the importance of telling others about a STD.
The leader of SADD, junior Katie Courtney, said, “I thought the assembly was sucessful. I thought it did a really good job of presenting issues that could be uncomfortable for a lot of people in a more relatable way. It seemed like most of the students thought it was a good assembly.”
