7th – 12th Grade

We are almost to the 4th quarter, which starts on April 8th. It’s hard to believe that the end of the school year is in-sight! I want to remind you that state testing will take place from April 2nd-16th. Students will be testing on different dates throughout that window. It is critical students be in school, well rested and ready to do their best work.


April 8th is also our 145th birthday, here at CSDB. Students will participate in a short assembly to review our school’s vast history and share in this celebration. Additionally, on May 22nd we will have a special performance highlighting the history of CSDB. Students from the School for the Deaf and the School for the Blind are involved in this performance. Be on the lookout for additional information.


Our spring track events are underway! We would love to see you at these meets, if you can come and support our athletes.


Graduation day is May 31st. Our seniors will finish up their academic classes on May 23rd, with senior week activities occurring May 28-30th. Additional information will be sent out.


As a reminder, our Accountability meetings occur the first Wednesday of each month, from 3:45-4:45pm. Again, your involvement is encouraged and valued.


The last day of school will be June 13th. The second semester awards program will start at 11:30am with the BBQ open from 11:15am-1pm. We will be highlighting student achievements for the school year and look forward to the opportunity to celebrate with you!

Two CSDB senior students in the School for the Deaf, DuChea High and Rose Longbine, were invited to play on the USADB’s High School All-Star basketball game in April.  It was a great experience for them to meet other Deaf students from other Deaf schools.  It was an opportunity for great personal growth for each of them. These students were model representatives of our Bulldog P.R.I.D.E. for this event!

Rose and DuChea in Action!
