School For The Deaf
The School for the Deaf provides a comprehensive academic program for students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing in grades K-12. Teachers challenge each student to achieve his/her potential in a signing environment that promotes the development of language and a positive self-concept. Annually, a team of professionals develops an individualized education plan for each student. The development of language, communication skills, critical thinking skills, appropriate social skills, and application of learned concepts are emphasized. Opportunities to mainstream in areas of strength are provided through a collaborative effort with the local public school districts.
Spring is in the air……..well it will be when it stops snowing!
It is May 1st and the weather forecast is for snow! Hard to believe!
Thank you all for your support in getting your children to school during TCAP testing. We had incredible attendance and were able to get our students tested!!
May is chock-full of learning experiences, field trips, and hands-on learning activities.
An event you don’t want to miss!!! May 15th will be our Spring Program. We will hold two performances – one in the morning and one in the evening. Our Winter Program was such a success! The students and staff can’t wait to show you what they have up their sleeves for spring!! If you are not able to attend the performance on campus, you will be able to access the program through LIVESTREAM. Information with the link to the program will be coming home with your student.
May is also MAP testing. This is the third and final time MAP will be given this year. Our students are excited to show how much they have learned. Your child’s test results will be sent home with their final report card.
Please check out the school calendar for May as we have two four day weekends scheduled. Elementary and middle school field days will be held later this month along with Athletics Awards Night on May 30th.
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6th – 10th. This is an excellent time to show your teacher how much you and your student appreciate their dedication to teaching our students.
