Family Events

We believe that without the full involvement of the whole family, a child cannot possibly reach his/her fullest potential, either in school, or in life.  Because of this belief,  from time to time Blossom holds Family Events.

Aside from learning about Deaf Culture and American Sign Language (ASL), our families also get a chance to spend time with each other and share experiences. To open the doors of communication for all participants, we provide a certified sign language interpreter for each Family Event.

Family Events are one of the many ways Blossom demonstrates its respect and celebration of the family as a whole.  Without the involvement of our families, our children’s futures wouldn’t be nearly as bright.


Family Events

While we enjoy having all our Blossom Families together during our school events, some of this year’s events will be “family events” which will require parent attendance, and some will be “student only in-school events”.  Details of the events and if/when parents are invited will be sent home throughout the school year.  Please check your child’s communication folder daily for these flyers.  If you have any questions, please call the school office.

*On certain event days listed below, students will have an individual or class presentation or performance which is mandatory.  Students will receive a grade for their presentations at the Science Fair & Culture Fest.  Please be sure your child is in attendance for those very important events.

Family Commitment and what it means at Blossom…

At Blossom, our goal is to teach children about life and learning through a positive supportive environment.  A large part of the success of this school is the relationship we forge with the families of Blossom.  In our busy lives we often need to stop and take stock of all that we have and to appreciate the value of ‘everyday’ life. 

Part of the everyday life of Blossom is the interdependent relationship we have with the families of our students.  We teach our children to get involved with their community on a regular basis and to embrace diversity and change.  One avenue we have available to us is that of ‘parent as teacher’.  It is through the involvement of parents that we are better able to educate children. When the family supports the learning environment, the child fully understands the importance of education. 

Blossom invites all families to assist in this learning journey through attending, participating and volunteering for Blossom activities, fundraisers and family events.


Family Commitment Hours

All families will be required to commit to 20 hours of volunteer services every year to Blossom by:

  • Attending & Participating in Monthly Family Events
  • Volunteering to decorate or set up for Holiday Events 
  • Attending & Participating in Holiday Events
  • Volunteering to organize a Booster Fundraiser
  • Collecting Silent Auction Items for Fundraising Events 
  • Attending and/or Participating in Fundraising Events
  • Chaperoning Field Trips & School Events (if requested)

Families receiving private scholarships will be required to commit 30 – 40 hours of volunteer service (depending on the percentage of scholarship support), as well as sign up for weekly American Sign Language (ASL) classes at the Deaf Literacy Center (DLC), your local library or college if their child is deaf or hard of hearing.  By giving back to the school families can show their child the importance of involvement within their own community.

Important please note: Some scheduled events will be student-only this school year.  Please look out for flyers in your child’s communication folder, as well as emails throughout the year, on ways you may help make these events & celebrations special and successful.
