Tuesday’s Edition of Interesting Facts for Deaf Awareness Week
Did you know that:

1) Sign language is not universal. There are almost as many sign languages as there are spoken languages in the world.

2) American Sign Language has rules of grammar and usage as different from English as any foreign language.

3) 90% of Deaf children are born to Hearing parents.

4) The three bones in your middle ear are the smallest bones in your body, and all three could fit together on a penny.

5) The inner ear is called the cochlea. It is shaped like a snail shell and is about the size of a pencil eraser, but it contains more than 20,000 hairs or cilia. The cilia turn sound waves into electrical impulses that run along your auditory nerve to your brain.

 

For your convenience all athletic and activity events can now be found on the WMS calendar.  This one stop convenient calendar will make it easy for staff, students and parents to access dates and times for all activities. Just click on the “School Calendar” tab at the top right.
