ASL Club hosts their second Parents’ Night Out this Friday from 5 – 9 p.m. This event is open for students, staff members, and children ages three to 13.

“I really like seeing all the kids come in and watch us sign,” sophomore secretary Tori Davis said. “And with the light in their eyes, it’s really cute.”

The evening’s activities will all be holiday or sign language related. Students will interpret The Nightmare Before Christmas and teach kids holiday signs. Kids at the event will get to participate in a wide variety of holiday themed activities organized by the ASL Club members.

“There will be cookie decorating, ornament decorating stations, and a photo booth,” Davis said. “We will also be signing holiday songs again since many kids enjoyed that last year.”

This is the second year that ASL Club is hosting this holiday event. They started hosting it last year as a fundraiser to get beanbag chairs for the ASL classroom. The event, which will be held in the lecture hall, costs $25 per child.

“We’re trying to get bean bags because it will help benefit students during class,” vice president Shannon Wallace said. “Because the class is all about using your eyes and being able to see everyone and it will just make the class a lot easier, so it’s just one of the things we do to raise money.”

Students in ASL club who attended Parents’ Night Out last year said they enjoyed hosting this holiday event last year, especially helping kids learn sign language, cookie decorating, and other holiday crafts.

“It’s just a lot of fun to sign the songs and be able to teach little kids signs and decorate cookies with them,” Wallace said. “It’s just something you can do that’s really fun and spirited for the holidays.”
