NY School for the Deaf celebrates 200 years

Students at the New York School for the Deaf in White Plains are celebrating the school's 200th anniversary.   
The celebration started Wednesday with the unveiling of a new mural that features 200 tiles showing the school's history.
The display is now a permanent part of the school. "It's an undiscovered gem. This school provides so much for our school community, but also for the residents who are interested in the world of American Sign Language," says President of the New York School for the Deaf Alexis Kashar.
Students also enjoyed an old fashioned themed picnic lunch to commemorate the school's excellence over the years.
