National Deaf Youth Day…
Was developed to recognize and bring together Deaf, Deafblind, Deafdisabled, and Hard of Hearing youth from schools for the deaf, mainstream programs, and universities. March 6th was chosen to represent National Deaf Youth Day for its proximity to Deaf History Month in April. March 13th is the day that the Deaf President Now movement in 1988 began and led to Gallaudet University having its first-ever Deaf president in it’s history.
National Deaf Youth Day serves two purposes: to celebrate the unique identify of deaf and hard of hearing people and their accomplishments; and, to promote the idea that deaf and hard of hearing you can do anything. Let’s celebrate our Deaf Oly’s today!
Student of the Month
One of the ways that we support a positive learning environment at Sprague is by recognizing students who are doing the right things. Each month, we ask staff to nominate students for this award, then vote on two students per grade level to be recognized. Students are nominated and voted on based on a particular OLY expectation. For February, we focused on students who Own their Actions.
The monthly winners will receive a certificate, their picture in the school newsletter, and a free drink at the Oly Lounge! Your Student of the Month winners for February are:
Valeria Cervantes Chavez
Miriam Martinez Ceja
Congratulations to our winners and keep up the good work Olys!
