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

1) Sitting in front of the speakers at a rock concert can begin to damage hearing in only 7 1/2 minutes. This damage cannot be reversed.

2) 37% of children with only minimal hearing loss fail at least one grade.

3) Listening through earphones for just one hour will increase the bacteria in your ear up to 700 times.

4) The sound of the roaring ocean you hear when putting a seashell next to your ear is the sound of your blood surging through the veins in your ear.

5) Contrary to popular belief, a cochlear implant does not result in “restored” hearing for the recipient, but does allow him or her to perceive sounds. A person with a cochlear implant hears an electronic version of sound similar to a computerized voice.


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.


The Attendance Office has purple NIKE athletic bags for sale for $30.00. Stop by to take a look.
