BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Chapel School Preschool in Bronxville recently welcomed eight students from the New York School for the Deaf in White Plains.
Teachers and Principal Barbara Robinson joined the two classes from NYSD recently, according to a press release.
"The Chapel School preschoolers were eager to show their guests a great time," representatives said in the release. "The children participated in circle time, show and tell, learned Halloween songs, had snack, and played on the playground."
Some of the NYSD students were from an auditory-oral class and some from a bilingual class.
"The Chapel School will continue to enjoy their new friendship with The New York School for the Deaf over the course of this school year with several visits," representatives said in the release. "All the children are excited about their next visit in December."
The Chapel School Preschool Director Michelle Tween said she was "thrilled about entering this new partnership," according to the release.
"I look forward to watching the preschoolers socialize and learn from each other," Tween said in the release. "Our students are already learning some sign language so that they can communicate even better with their new friends."
The Chapel School is at 172 White Plains Road in Bronxville. For more information about the Chapel School and its programs, call 914-337-3202 or visit The Chapel School website .
