Big Brother Big Sister Program has been around for a long time here at Alabama School for the Deaf. It is a pleasant and rewarding program for both the older students and the younger students who are involved. This year we have two groups of older students. One group meets with younger ones on Tuesdays and the other group is our Wednesday night group. We are meeting with the younger girl students in Mary Leonard Hall on Tuesdays and Wednesday’s group meets with the slightly older girls in Graves Hall West dormitory. After about 6 weeks of meeting with these two dorms we will change during the week of October 2nd to Weaver Cottage our youngest dorm on campus on Tuesdays and our Wednesday Big Brother Big Sister team will visit with Taylor Hall, the younger boy’s dorm. Then second semester we will go back to Mary Leonard Hall on Tuesdays and Graves Hall West on Wednesdays. And by March we will return to Weaver Cottage and Taylor Hall. Our activities are vary from playing board games, leading softball games, doing art projects, walking/racing around the track and even some educational nights of spelling bees and math contests. At the end of the year in celebration of a job well done the Big Brothers and Sisters gather in the Snack Bar for their annual pizza party and reflect on their commitment for the year in helping as role models to our younger students. We are always proud of their year-long commitment to working well with the younger students.
