American Sign Language teacher Tonya North has been teaching ASL for 3 years and started the American Sign Language Club this year. This club is open to anyone who wants to learn ASL or build onto previous knowledge. Students who don’t have room in their schedule can join this club as well as students who have already taken the courses but would like to continue learning.

This club works on and refines their signing skills, as well as learning some more difficult signs. They also play ASL games, watch movies, and have chat days.

“Students should join the ASL club so they can learn a useful new skill that can not only help them in any career and everyday life but so they can learn about a new community of people who have a beautiful language,” North said.

Senior Camryn Kime is taking ASL 2 this year and joined the ASL club at the beginning of this year. She joined to help her ASL skills grow.

“My favorite part about being in this club is the community,” Kime said. “There are so many people who I wouldn’t have met if it weren’t for this club. Sign language is a really cool skill to have and you never know when you will need to use it. It has been such a good year and I encourage everyone to try it out.”

Senior Ethan Cornett is also apart of the ASL club. He joined at the beginning of this year and has been doing ASL for 5 years.

“I really enjoy when we play different types of ASL games and have guest speakers,” Cornett said. “I would definitely join again if I could, you gain a bunch of knowledge and have fun.”

To join ASL club go to room B110 after school to be apart of the meetings. Any further questions can be answered by contacting Tonya North at tnorth@baschools.org.
