Welcome to Stink Week 2018!

Stink Week is a week-long campaign to RAISE AWARENESS and RAISE FUNDS to support children with hearing loss and their families! 

In March 2017, over 250 students, teachers, family member and professionals (some shown in photos below) came together to raise awareness and over $20,000 to support children with hearing loss and their families. 

Stink Week 2017

Raise Awareness

Each day of Stink Week we will be posting facts and challenges about hearing loss. Everyone is encourage to log-on to every day of Stink Week to learn something new and share what you've learned with others. Here are a few comments we received last year about our daily hearing loss awareness pages:

"What I learned was awesome! I can't wait to learn more :]:}"

"I was able to share more facts about hearing loss with classmates. My bracelet was loved by my friends, and people asked me about it, so I could explain about my brother and deafness."

"Super fun!"

"Very interesting and  engaging"

"We love learning about sign language!"
