Nine Cathedral Catholic High School American Sign Language Honor Society students, led by advisor Mrs. Amber Elliott, traveled last weekend to the California School for the Deaf Riverside to volunteer at the school’s third annual Family Fun weekend. At the event, approximately 50 deaf, hearing, and hard-of-hearing children and their families gathered on the CSDR campus. For the majority of the day, the children played on the playground, watched movies, and had lots of fun interacting with the volunteers while their parents attended other matters, including speakers, seminars, and other resources necessary to help them raise deaf children. Although a lot of the deaf and hard-of-hearing attendees do not actually attend CSDR and instead attend mainstream schools, their families appeared at the event in order to receive aid in raising a deaf child. At the end of it all, the nine student volunteers benefitted in many surprising ways.
