ASL Club is a new PHS organization with a very hearty goal of improve sign language skills and D/deaf awareness to any person in our local PHS community. We are here to provide opportunities for the hearing students and parents and the D/deaf community an opportunity to communicate and socialize with one another in order to grow closer together.
Our goals for ASL Club are to provide opportunities for PHS students to improve upon their American Sign Language skill, to learn about Sign Language, learn about and experience Deaf culture first hand, and to show that sign language is a different language and a TRUE language. We are here to have FUN!!
ASL Club provides opportunities to help hearing people feel comfortable communicating and socializing with Deaf people. At our activities it is our goal to only use ASL and keep our voices off as much as possible. This is because we believe that learning by immersion is the best method to learn true sign language. We will generally have game nights, movies or other fun activity at which anyone can come and participate. Sometimes we'll even host large events including other school districts such as “voices off” Silent Dinners, Scarborough’s Fair, Local Field trips to the Plano Regional schools for the Deaf and Texas School for the Deaf in Austin.
