The American sign language club is a club offered to all students in the ASL class. Its purpose is to help practice signing skills and meet other students. They do lots of fun stuff like play games, talk to new people, plan activities, and practice concepts and skills they learn in class.
The club has a good turn-out at each activity. According to Hannah Arnold, the club president, they have around 30-40 kids at each activity. With so many kids at each activity, there are a ton of new people to meet every time.
The club has a lot of fun things coming up. Once a month, the club has an activity at Pace’s in Layton. At this activity, they are not allowed to talk to each other, they can only sign. Sometimes, two people who are deaf will come to the activity and students can sign with them.
“It’s a great opportunity to see what deaf culture is actually like”. said Charity Maynes.
When asked about how the club is impacting the deaf community.
“It’s helping students at Davis become more aware of deaf culture and learn more about ASL.” said Hannah Arnold, president.
The ASL club is a great way to learn more about Sign Language, but if you want to learn even more, you can register for the ASL class.
