Congratulations to the 7th grade track team on a great performance in their meet against Powell on Monday.  Newton girls beat Powell by dominating  the running events and coming out strong with the field events.   Despite their low numbers, the boys put up a good fight but unfortunately were defeated.  Don't forget practice is today after school.  We will be preparing for our final meet against Euclid on Monday.  Please see Mr. Wilmes or Mrs. Rodrigue if you cannot make the meet.   We need to know who is coming so that we can set up the races.  

As deaf awareness week continues, we wanted to answer some of the great questions posed by Newton Students.
First, how do people become deaf? Well there are many ways. Some people are born deaf. Hospitals use Newborn infant hearing screening programs to identify hearing loss in infants shortly after birth. Some people can lose their hearing from an illness, such as meningitis. Other people damage their hearing by listening to loud music with or without headphones, or working near loud machinery without proper protection.
Second, can deaf people regain hearing? We can improve what we hear by using technology, like hearing aids or amplification systems. Now imagine that you took a photograph that was blurry. Wearing a hearing aid is like taking that photo, blowing it up and focusing on one piece of the photo to try to get a better picture. It does not become clear and crisp, but it is perhaps a little easier to figure out the subject.
Keep those great questions coming!

Do you like the color red? black? white? Do you secretly want to be a Knight? Well, you're in luck!! TOMORROW IS NEWTON SPIRIT DAY!! Come dressed in Newton colors!"

It's Deaf awareness week. Thank you to Sarah H for meeting our

challenge and naming Deaf rapper SignMark who raps in Sign Language.
No one picked up on our hint about Deaf actress Marlee Matlin, but we
were entertained by those who guessed Donald Trump. Maybe that's
because any hair styling tips he's been given have " fallen on deaf
ears."

We have received many great questions! Newton Knights are proving to
be caring and engaged and asking thought provoking questions. The deaf
and hard of hearing students answered this question: Do you feel left
out? Their answers:  we sometimes feel left out when someone talks to
us and we need them to repeat what they said and they respond with
"never mind." For the most part we spend our time with true friends
who are willing to repeat themselves as often as necessary so we can
understand what is being said. We thank you for your open-minded,
caring willingness to include us in conversations, even when you have
to repeat yourself several times to be understood.

Our next Trivia question is this: name the university in Washington
D.C that is for Deaf students.

Remember to write your name on your entries!


Now is the time!!!!  Early registration for the Littleton Stride has begun at a discount.  Save five dollars if you register by this Friday.  We will have more information coming but if you know you want to do the run or the walk now is the time to register.  Ask Mrs. Mack or Mrs Plegge for more information if you are interested.

Thank you for your responses to our Deaf Awareness Week Questions. The
overwhelmingly popular response to our Trivia Question was: da da da
da! Helen Keller. We would like to challenge everyone here at Newton,
staff included, to come up with a more modern-day famous deaf person.
Who watches Dancing with the Stars or The Apprentice?  Switched at
Birth? Hint, hint.
The Deaf Culture question of the day, asked by Alyssa L in 7th
grade: How do deaf people learn sign language? Answered by 6th grader
Logan A: Just like all of you learned English, I learned sign
language from my mom, who signed with me when I was little. I also
learned from my deaf education teachers, speech teachers, and
interpreters.
Remember to ask your questions about deaf culture, deafness, and/or
sign language and put your entries in the box in the cafeteria. Trivia
