Announcing a New After School Club!

Ever wanted to learn sign language? Join us on Mondays after school and you can. During our time together we will learn about the various aspects of American Sign Language as well as some signed English. We will learn how to sign the letters of the alphabet and have basic conversations. Sessions will include games like charades and fun activities like learning how to sign a song and or poems.

I look forward to seeing you there!
