River Valley Adds Sign Language Club to After School Activities
Posted February 5, 2017
Students at River Valley have an opportunity to join a sign language club for the first time in River Valley history. The class is facilitated by three of River Valley's sign language interpreters. Currently, DHH (deaf and hard of hearing) programs are in each of the three district's schools. Most of the students in the River Valley DHH program are included in classes throughout River Valley so students are familiar with the need to communicate with signs. The club had an outstanding turnout with 90+ students signed up and ready to go at their first meeting. The students will be learning the alphabet, some words and a song they will perform for their parents at their last meeting. Club sponsor, Claudia Longino, was thrilled with the number of students participating and commented that "this was a dream come true."
