SignWriting List

Hello Everyone, and Robin -

I am so glad you wrote today, Robin. I want you to know that you and
your school has been accepted into our SignWriting Literacy Project.
Thank you for your letter and web report, which I will be posting
tonight.

Today I telephoned Lisa Akers, your Assistant Principal, and I told
Lisa I am sending two big white boxes to her tomorrow...so by the
middle of next week you should have your materials for the kids!

I can well imagine you had a hard childhood as a hard-of-hearing
person. But you are pioneering with your own students...so maybe you
can help solve some of those problems for future generations...

And I hope SignWriting can be a positive addition to your classroom ;-)

Best -
--

Val ;-)
