News from Plano Regional Day School Program for the Deaf

Spring Show Is Almost Here

Spring Break and Spring Show are just around the corner. I just don't know where this year has gone. I know everyone is counting the days until the break. When we return, the students, teachers, and paraprofessionals will be busy preparing for the big show on Saturday, March 19. We hope everyone can make it. The show is always entertaining.

Thanks for your responses to our parent survey. It is not too late to fill out a survey and send it to your child's deaf education teacher or email it to me. Your responses help us with our Peer Review process. Through the Peer Review process we work to make improvements to our program. To access the form go to Our Peer Review is in April.

Did you miss the February Parent Meeting?

If you did, but would still like information on Speech, you can get the flyer they shared by following the link - If you want more information on speech, contact your child's SLP. If your child does not have speech, but you want more information you can contact one of our wonderful SLPs.

We have the best SLPs -
