Deaf Awareness Week at Madrona

September 25th – 29th, 2023

September is Deaf Awareness Month and September 23rd is International Sign Language Day. Madrona has a long tradition of celebrating Deaf Awareness Week, but due to Covid-19, building moves, and leadership transitions we haven’t been able to do so for the past three years. After 3 years, now it’s back!

Deaf Awareness Week at Madrona is September 25-29th.

Kassy Lynch, an 8th grade Deaf and Hard of Hearing student, won the DHH button design contest. Her logo will be made into buttons for everyone at Madrona school.

Deaf Awareness Week will include facts about Deaf culture read during morning announcements, morning meeting plans with different activities, and the library will have ASL books and bookmarks available. Centers and Homerooms can even sign up to request a visit by a Deaf staff member to teach a few signs, read a book or answer questions. It’s going to be a great week!



Last call to sign up for Fall Enrichment classes!  A few spots are open in most classes, however, we do need more students in these three classes: Artwise, ASL Advanced, and French 2-3. Sign up at or download the Enrichment flyer from our website:…/enrichment/

Enrollment closes Tuesday, 9/26, at 12pm and classes start the week of 10/2. Email with questions.
