MSDB Happenings News Letter
Goalball is a popular sport for blind and visually impaired people. Two teams play against each other. All players are blindfolded to make the game fair, due to varying levels of sight among players. The object is to roll a heavy ball with bells in it past the opposing team, which tries to block the ball with their bodies. The games are very exciting and challenging, and they offer all the valuable lessons of team sportsmanship.
March 21-22, 2014 on the MSDB Campus.

Deaf Enrichment Weekend
In contrast to Family Learning Weekends, Deaf Enrichment Weekends (DEW) are designed to create opportunities for students who are deaf & hard of hearing to interact with their peers, rather than providing information for parents and siblings. The weekend is designed to promote socialization and activities that are implemented to build confidence and a sense of responsibility in each participant. Students in grades K-Transition are welcome to attend. Activities will be modified according to each child’s age and ability. Parents are welcome to participate in activities as appropriate.

A goal at MSDB is to continually improve our student's educational opportunities. The annual Graduate Survey is an important part of that process. It tells us how well we prepared you for college, a job, and for living independently. The information helps us make changes that better meet the needs of our students. Your privacy is important to us, and your answers can remain anonymous.
