ALAMANCE COUNTY, North Carolina — There’s a special group of students in a North Carolina classroom who are dedicated to making one of their classmates feel included.

Children at Sylvan Elementary School are learning sign language to ensure that their hearing-impaired peer, Jordan, doesn’t feel left out, WFMY reports.

Currently, there are 40 kids participating in the sign language class, which meets every Thursday after school.  It was so popular, that the school had to add another class.

And get this: the students are getting so good at signing that they’ve actually been seen communicating with each other using sign language in the hallways!
