Stand Up and Stretch

Help me give my students the opportunity to be able to work in a space that allows them to move freely, collaborate easily, and be able to stand instead of sitting all the time.

My Students

Overall, we have a traditional middle school with an innovative staff that is working to transform it into a place of community, personal growth, and academic rigor.

There are approximately 1,000 students at our middle school, and we are implementing community-building strategies to help students thrive during the tough times of pre-adolescence.

We are striving to create a large middle school that feels like an extended family and is a safe, healthful place for students to learn about content, their peers, and themselves. Our school is a melting pot! About 40% of our students label their "race"/ethnicity as White, 40% Latino, 4% Black, 3% Asian and 2% Filipino, and 1% Native American. They are socioeconomically diverse as well. Approximately two-thirds of our students are living near the poverty line and are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. The students at our school are full of life and love of learning. They are eager to grow physically, intellectually, and personally.

My Project

Several students in my classes have ADHD and need the opportunities to be able to move about the classroom. The adjustable height desks will allow students to work standing up. This enables them to work, move, and stretch at the same time. As an adult I am up and moving all the time and I find I am more productive.

In a science class, students need places to gather to discuss ideas, create projects, and work on computers in a different setting.

Due to traditional seating arrangements in classrooms, students are confined. These desks will offer an alternative environment places for students to work.
