Harris KIN welcomes.... Mrs. Delgado -ASL Interpreter

The speaker of the month of January was Mrs. Delgado who is an interpreter for the school district. She explained to the reason why interpreters are needed and her role in the life of students who are deaf. She taught the students different signs and signed their names. Her presentation was to prepare the students for the ASL club that will start this month in KIN.

New year.. New clubs

At Harris KIN we are proud to be bringing clubs back to the program. On Tuesdays and Thursdays a different club will be offered to the students who signed up at the beginning of the month. The clubs that we will offer this month will be Arts and Crafts, ASL, and sports. Three new clubs will be offered every month and the students will have the opportunity to chose what club they want to participate in.
