The Gerber School American Sign Language Club, lead by Cathy Wilson, has been hard at work this year learning to communicate with the deaf and hard of hearing among us through ASL. On June 9, they performed 'Wonderful World' by Louis Armstrong for the rest of the school, and did a wonderful job! Click here to see a video of the performance.
We've had a fantastic year, and the students and staff at Gerber have focused all year on being kind to one another, rising to Rachel's Challenge, and exploring what it means to really be there for one another. Staff and students helped compile this video -- our gift to each other and the community. Enjoy!
The summer is a perfect time to increase your language skills. There are a number of free online programs to help students learn Spanish, English, or almost any other language! Mr. Lando, our technology teacher, recommends duolingo.com -- check it out! It's completely free, and a great place for students, parents, and teachers to pick up a new language or improve the ones they already speak! Make sure to keep learning this summer so you're ready to go in August!
