Superintendent's Message

With the advent of spring – the next couple of months will roll along nicely, filled with blooming flowers, constant sunshine, a few rainy days and bustling activity that will keep our venerable school rolling along.

Our students will be very busy this April participating in the annual Math Counts competition held in Rochester, New York at the Rochester Institute for Technology and our Track and Field teams will be travelling to Danville, Kentucky to participate in the annual Berg and Seeger Tournament hosted by the Kentucky School for the Deaf.  We will also celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday on April 16th and host the annual national Deaf Prep baseball tournament on our beautiful campus – The William Ellsworth “Dummy” Hoy Classic.

As ever, our school is committed emphasizing our involvement in the greater community at large – we will have students involved in the Legislative Page Day; competing in the annual Optimist Club presentations; enjoying an Appreciation Breakfast hosted by the students of the Oriole Academy; and maintaining our week-long collaboration with members of Boston University on ASL Assessment.  We will celebrate Earth Day on campus before sending off our renowned Academic Bowl team to Washington, D.C. to participate in the annual National Academic Bowl competition held on the beautiful campus of Gallaudet University!

A very busy month for all our students, teachers and staff, indeed – in keeping with our everyday belief that the Indiana School for the Deaf is a school where every student belongs, excels and thrives!
