Pre-K – 6th Grade

This is an exciting time of year for our students! They love sharing the activities they are participating in at home! It is a great opportunity to have conversations with students about the sights, sounds and smells of the holiday season. At school, we incorporate the joy of the season into our daily lessons while staying focused on meeting IEP goals, completing units of instruction, and developing reading, writing and math skills.

Our K – 6th grade Winter Performance is taking place December 18th, at 2 p.m. The theme is “Storybook Theater” with each skit focused on a specific children’s book. The play will be in Gottlieb and should last approximately one hour. Refreshments will be served following the performance.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with joy and special memories!

Principal, Pre-K-6th grades, School for the Deaf
