Each year, students from BISD’s Regional Day School for the Deaf compete in the Gallaudet Battle of the Books for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students. This year, a team of six students from Smithfield Middle School competed and advanced through multiple rounds of the online competition. The team won the opportunity to compete in the final round April 22–25 on the campus of Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. Gallaudet University provides education for hearing impaired and some hearing individuals from preschool through graduate school. BISD is proud of these students and their sponsors. #BISDShines
