At Cascade Junior High School, we have a variety of clubs to serve a diverse student body. These clubs meet after school and participate in an array of activities. All students are encouraged to get involved in extracurricular activities.

Sign Language Club

  • Tuesdays (3:30 - 4:30)
  • Mr. Bowman - Room 3

This club teaches students how to communicate via sign language. Students will learn to “talk” from far away from each other, when it’s too loud, and they will be an asset for the deaf and hard of hearing community. Some of the initial topics will include numbers, letters, how to ask questions, common phrases, and basic communication skills.

This club will discuss the books, examine sample questions and practice quizzing each other.
