Ms. Bish’s Classroom Edit display name

  • Sitton Elementary School

  • More than three‑quarters of students from low‑income households

Our special education class consists of students K-5, ages 5-11, who are impacted by moderate to severe disabilities, including intellectual disability as well as mobility and physical limitations. Several of our students are in wheelchairs and demonstrate discomfort with the positions that they are limited to for the majority of their time. Others need adult assistance for walking, sitting upright and/or use of hands and fingers. Our students receive physical and occupational therapy as well as adapted PE to meet their physical needs. We also try to incorporate fun, relaxing movement into our daily schedule, to give our students opportunities to enjoy themselves and each other as non-disabled peers are able to do. Currently, we have a dance break every day, and several movement periods where students in chairs can get on the floor to stretch and play. However, we find our play materials are more than lacking, and bordering on unsafe due to age and usage. This is why we need your help.
