Poppy Visits

Andrew Brinks, better known as lower school students Scarlett and Sawyer Brinks’s Poppy, visited the kindergarten classes this October. Both classes have been learning American Sign Language (ASL) for basic words and phrases including “thank you”, “please”, and “bathroom”. Mr. Brinks, who was born deaf, has lived his entire life learning how to communicate with others through ASL. Poppy taught the children how to sign and showed them the neat technology he uses! The children learned about his phone, his watch, his cochlear implant and his " alarm clock". Poppy kept the kindergartners fascinated for a solid 45 minutes..... he would be surprised to know their normal attention span is only between 10 to 20 minutes!!  The kindergarteners are so grateful to Poppy for sharing his story with them!
