Dear SW List Members:
I am happy to announce that three new schools are officially participating
in our SignWriting Literacy Project. The first is the Robarts School for
the Deaf in London, Ontario, Canada. Paul Cowley is the contact person for
the Robarts School. I have spoken to Paul about this, and it appears that
the project will begin in the fall, although some teachers might choose to
learn SignWriting themselves during the summer months. Six teachers and 40
students will be participating at the Robarts School.

I have not created their web page yet, but I will over the weekend. Here is
their confirmation letter, from the school principal, Cheryl Barry:

are closely related. This, we hope, will lead to an increased motivation to

We agree to complete three Web Reports in return for the SignWriting
materials and technical support you donate to us. We understand that this
letter and all three reports will become public information and will be
posted to the SignWriting List and posted on the SignWriting Web Site. You
have our full permission to use the information as needed.

Please send SignWriting materials for six teachers and 40 students.

Thank you for considering us for your project.
