Can you believe we are more than halfway through the 2015-2016 school year? It’s been a great year filled with many new developments for our programs, including an exciting WITS Performance project with one of our favorite school partners.
On January 26th, we were thrilled to celebrate Ms. Blackmon’s 6th grade students at T.H. Rogers’ Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD). With the support of an interpreter and their WITS writer, Sharon Ferranti, the students signed original stories and poems in front of a rapt audience of peers, parents, and teachers. We are grateful to T.H. Rogers for opening the door for WITS Performance to serve more deaf and hard of hearing students in the years to come!
“Nizhuria’s Song” by Nizhuria
I’m thankful for stars, so bright.
I’m thankful for rainbows, so colorful.
I’m thankful for flowers that smell so good.
I’m thankful for the galaxy, so huge!
I don’t like swimming, so dangerous.
I don’t like lunch detention, so boring!
I don’t like floods, so bad.
I don’t like people in front of my face when they speak, it embarrasses me.
“Friends” by Victor
Someone to eat delicious tacos with
Someone to talk with about Christmas
Someone to go trick or treating with on Halloween
Someone to play outside with me
Someone to watch movies with me and my dad
