  • ‘Understand their entire world’

    Walk through the front doors of Rocky Mountain Deaf School, and it strikes you — silence.

    Spotlights illuminated three on-stage crosses, casting shadows on the rocks behind the stage and welcoming those to the venue for worship.

    It never seemed like the rules were that important to a lot of people who used the Evergreen Bark Park.
