AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE
ASL (American Sign Language) Club meets once a week on Wednesdays throughout the school year to complete a variety of activities both on the Rincon Vista campus and visits to Miles ELC in TUSD (a magnet school for students who are deaf and their siblings.) The students learn how to play games using ASL, about the hand shapes used to create the words, letters, and numbers used in American Sign Language, and about deafness and the deaf culture. There is no fee for this club and all are welcome!
ART CLUB will meet on TUESDAYS after school in the Art Studio to create! We will explore, painting, drawing, sculpture etc. We will create public Art to honor, decorate and celebrate our school and community. We will also be creating our own tiles. We will be experimenting with stained glass to slump & fuse it in a glass kiln. If possible, we will have speakers join us or take a field trip! We will offer Face Painting at school functions such as dances etc. Our outreach will consist of the tiles mentioned above and other public services around our school.
The cost for Art Club is $25 due on the first day you come and join us. This includes the cost of your club T- Shirt and supplies required for projects you will take home.
