American Sign Language (ASL) club has started its activities for the year. ASL club is not just for those who know sign language. Students go to meetings to learn a few new signs, and have fun playing games, and doing fun activities. It’s a great way to meet new people.

Sign language is a form of communication for deaf people. It is a great skill to have, even if you only know the basics. Being able to translate or help translate is a life skill, and looks good on resumes, college applications, and job applications.

The club has an activity once a month in Mrs. VanDusen’s room, B106. Outside of school, they try to visit deaf schools or go to the deaf center for activities. The club tries to get involved as much as they can with the deaf community.

On November 30, they will be hosting a pancake party before school. In December, Hillcrest is collaborating with other schools for a potluck.

ASL club president Brooke Iacobazzi says, “ASL club is a fun opportunity that allows students to get involved with the deaf community.”

If you’re looking for a way to interact and learn more about the deaf community, join ASL club. See Mrs. VanDusen for information on how to join.
