Deaf Day 2019

September 26, 2019

For the 3rd year in a row SWHS’s ASL students have participated in Deaf Day where they have to go through the school day struggling to hear (thanks to some ear plugs) and not being able to talk. By doing this they get a glimpse of what it is like to be a Deaf student in a mainstream school. Not only does Deaf Day give Ms. Wilson’s ASL students a unique experience but it gives the whole school and experience of how to interact with Deaf students from the classroom, to the hallway, to the lunchroom students and faculty had to find new ways to communicate with each other.
