7th – 12th Grade

 

We are off to a great start this school year! The focus continues to be on students reaching identified growth goals. In pursuit of this objective, we are piloting a tutoring class second quarter. This class is identified for students who need additional assistance and time in comprehending and completing class work.

We were able to meet with several families for parent-teacher conferences and recent IEPs! Parents and families are always invited to come and discuss how we can help students be successful.

We just finished our fall athletic season, consisting of football and volleyball. Our teams did a fabulous job and showed perseverance and a positive attitude! The winter athletic season is starting, which includes basketball and wrestling. Please come and watch our students as they participate in these events.

 

Sincerely,

Kristen Huddleston

Principal, School for the Deaf 7th-12th grades

Tosha Daniels biology classes are studying about heredity. They just finished learning about how DNA is our blueprint and how it determines our traits. They did an activity called “A Recipe for Traits”, which allowed them to understand that there are variations in DNA that lead to the inheritance of different traits. The students were given several example DNA strips to determine what traits their dog would get, and then drew their dog based on the given information. They found it hilarious that everyone’s dog looked so different.
