Northwest School for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children (NWSDHH) on Westminster Way N unveiled their brand new, state-of-the-art playground at their campus in Shoreline on Saturday, October 22.

New playground was an instant hit

Dozens of students, family members, staff, and supporters gathered to unveil the new playground at Northwest School for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children (NWSDHH).

Through the generous support of donors like the Norcliffe Foundation, the Rotary Club of Alderwood Terrace, Armstrong McDonald Foundation, The Independent Pilots Association, private donors and a commitment from NWSDHH’s Board of Trustees, the school was able to create a new playground that extends learning and development for our deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

Students sharpen their skills through play

The new playground includes sensory equipment to help students sharpen their listening, social and collaboration skills while playing.

Following the ribbon cutting, many of the attendees stayed on hand for the annual Back-to School Picnic organized by NWSDHH’s Parents Club.

NWSDHH, located in Shoreline, opened its doors in 1982. The only preschool through eighth grade school of its kind in the state, the school provides educational services to deaf and hard-of-hearing (D/HH) students from more than a dozen different school districts in the Greater Puget Sound Region. Its mission is dedicated to using spoken English paired with Signing Exact English (S.E.E.) to help D/HH students become self-confident, articulate and academically competitive learners and contributing community members.
