AUGUST has flown by! It is hard to believe we have already been in school a month. There have football and volleyball games, soccer practices, events and activities. We enjoyed a cookout on August 14 hosted by the chapel program. Students enjoyed the burgers, dogs and games. Members from three different churches for the Deaf helped host. New Student Orientation was a big hit this year with “ASD Jeopardy” and a Scavenger Hunt! On August 15, Graves Hall West and Mary Leonard Hall held their annual “Dorm Night” program on “Good Touch/Bad Touch”. Students from Henderson Hall, McDonald Hall, Taylor Hall, Preuitt Hall, Thornton Hall and Jemison House attended a program by the Talladega Police department regarding laws and social media. Dorm staff enjoyed a program by Nancy Foshee, Spanish Translator, on August 26. We learned about Hispanic culture and language, in addition to some “survival” phrases. Weaver Cottage celebrated August birthdays with a trip to CiCi’s Pizza and Oxford Lake on August 31. See you next month with more dorm news – there is always something GOOD to learn and grow from at ASD!
