The Sign Language Club meets on Thursday mornings from 7:15 - 8:00.
(We will not meet on weeks with major testing, i.e. Finals, EOCs and AP tests.)
The goal of the club is to expose students to basic American Sign Language. As we meet once per week for only 45 minutes, proficiency will not be met. It also fosters communication with the deaf student at DHS. An additional benefit is the exposure to sign language interpreting as a profession. I have at least one student planning on pursuing this profession as a career and majoring in it in college. Bravo!
This is a stress free environment -- no tests involved! You learn a visual language in a fun, casual way.
I hope to visit the zoo this year to learn animal signs. We will learn the national anthem again and sign at a boys basketball game. Also planned is a silent lunch and games day.
Again, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask questions.
Please complete the membership/dues form below and submit at your earliest convenience. I look forward to our 2017-2018 school year!
