The Iowa School for the Deaf is celebrating a birthday. It would be tough to miss — thius whole year’s dedicated to commemorating the 150th anniversary of the school’s creation. Today (Monday) marks the anniversary of the day the state legislature passed the bill authorizing a state school for the hearing-impaired, and students and teachers will be guests at a luncheon. The school’s already held historical events like spelling bees to show students what it was like back then, and made a mockup one-room schoolhouse where students could make cornbread, dressd in pioneer clothing and write on slates instead of paper. The crowning events of the sesquicentennial will come this fall during homecoming at the school in Council Bluffs.
