PTA Work Room
There are still lots of slots open for next week's PTA Work Room!  
See below for the PTA Work Room days for the remainder of the year:
Friday, March 2nd
Thursday, April 5th
Friday, May 4th
The PTA Work Room is a great resource for our teachers, as we help them complete projects/class work they would normally not have time to complete, or would have to stay after school to complete.  This is an invaluable resource for teachers, and they are SO grateful for our help!

Deaf Culture Corner
Do Deaf people watch TV?
Yes, with closed captions, if you'd like to turn them on: there is a button on your remote that says "CC" or find captioning options under Menu. Closed captions improve one's reading skills.  It does not apply only to Deaf people. It also can apply to young hearing children learning how to read, older hearing individuals who are losing their hearing, individuals learning English as a second language.  They can benefit from having captions on their TV.
