Join WSPN’s Jenny Shine and Annika Martins as they interview MOSS leader Erin Lavelle.

In the third edition of WSPN Goes Clubbing, WSPN’s Jenny Shine and Annika Martins discuss the MOSS (Make Our School Safe) club.

What is MOSS?
“Make Our School Safe (MOSS) is a club focused around targeted violence and mental health,” sophomore MOSS club leader Erin Lavelle said. “We’re also incorporating elementary schools into [MOSS].”

How did this club begin?
“Sophomore MOSS club leader Kenzie Morris has connections to someone that was [in] a classroom [next to] a shooting, so it was pretty traumatic for her,” Lavelle said. “[Her friend] began the MOSS club, and Morris decided to begin it in Wayland High School. We’re the first [MOSS] club in Massachusetts.”

Why should someone join the club?
“[MOSS] is a good way to connect with your community, make sure your community is safe and help out with school safety,” Lavelle said.

What are meetings like and how often are they?
“[MOSS] meets about once a month,” Lavelle said. “In the meetings, we like to get input from our members and the members are really involved. We talk about fundraisers and our upcoming plans.”

What is one goal that you have for the club this year?
“I would say one goal [for MOSS] is to get more people to join,” Lavelle said. “We’ve had a lot of new members join, but getting a few [more] new members would be great.”
